Another day, another IRS telephone scam
space
A recent spike in reports about Internal Revenue Service phone scam attempts to the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection coincides with a warning from the IRS about a new variation on this never-ending scam.

In this new twist, the IRS reports that phone scammers have recently begun telling taxpayers that they failed to respond to two certified letters from the agency and that they risk arrest if an immediate payment is not made by prepaid debit card.

The scammer falsely claims that the debit card is linked to the IRS’s payment system and warns the victim not to contact their tax preparer, an attorney or the local IRS office until the payment is made.

It is likely that these scammers are playing off of the recent news that the IRS has begun using four approved debt collection companies to assist in collecting debts that are more than two years old. Those taxpayers affected by this change will, in fact, receive two letters to inform them that they will be contacted by one of these companies – one letter will come from the IRS directly and the other will be from the collection company.

Shoplifting call results in numerous charges
space
Numerous charges are pending for a trio involved in a shoplifting incident Thursday at Mills Fleet Farm in Antigo.

According to police reports, a store employee called authorities to report staff was watching a female inside the store, who had allegedly put a bb gun and wrenches in her purse. The employee felt she may be leaving soon and would attempt to flee if confronted.

Following police arrival, the woman, a 44-year-old Rockford, Ill. resident, did leave the store and was stopped by police in the parking lot. A search of her purse turned up $144.45 of merchandise, including six wrench sets, a tank top, and shorts. The bb gun was apparently hidden underneath the woman’s shirt.

Her companions, a 44-year-old male and a 26-year-old female, both from Laona, were located at the nearby Fleet Farm gas station.

A search of their vehicle turned up a bottle of pills for which no one had a prescription. A search of the man yielded a jewel bag of what was later determined to be methamphetamine.

A number of other items located in the vehicle are suspected to have been stolen from the Rhinelander Shopko store.

The 44-year-old woman faces
