Duluth Police have taken to social media to warn about a popular scam this time of the year.

DPD is reminding people that scam artists are taking advantage of tax season and posing as the IRS.

They point out that the IRS will not blind call anyone about taxes due and threating to call the police.

If you do get a call like this, they suggest hanging up the phone immediately.

The IRS will contact you through the mail and will not call you. If you need more info about IRS scams click here.
