MARKED TREE, AR (KAIT) - The Marked Tree Police Department is warning people of what they call an apparent IRS scam.

According to a Facebook post, the department was notified Tuesday about someone with a Montana phone number calling and claiming to be from the IRS.

The caller asked for a Social Security number. When the person refused, the caller stated that the Marked Tree police would come to arrest them.

MTPD warns people to never give their Social Security number over the phone and said they would never call and ask for that information.

Police are asking that if you are called, try to get the phone number and call Marked Tree police at 870-358-2024.
