SHERMAN, Tex. (KXII) - Local law enforcement say someone is calling Texomans, claiming to be with the IRS demanding you pay up or face arrest from local officers.

Sherman police say they have received over 20 calls with questions about these scams in just the last two days, but that thankfully no one has fallen victim so far.

Paris Police have reported the same scam in their area this week.

The caller says local police will come to arrest you if you don't pay up immediately.

Police say if you get one of these calls, just hang up. The real IRS won't call you about a warrant.

If you've been contacted and wish to report this scam to the Federal Trade Commission, you can do so here.
