BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota attorney general’s office is warning of a phone scam that involves callers posing as IRS agents.

The callers claim to be part of the IRS enforcement team and have tried to convince consumers to purchase a certified cashier’s check, deposit it into another account, and email them the transaction receipt.

Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem says the scam has claimed at least one victim.
