Phone scammers continue to claim to be from IRS, FBI

Atherton police warn: Don't reveal personal information on phone

Atherton Police said last week that residents continue to be called by "imposters claiming to be the federal government, IRS, or FBI." The police department reminded local residents to "not give out any personal information over the phone."

Instead, they said, the source of all unsolicited calls should be verified "by hanging up, looking up the number to that organization and calling back."

Find more information in an earlier Almanac story or by calling the Atherton Police Department at 688-6500.
