BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem (STEN’-juhm) is warning consumers about telephone scam in which perpetrators pose as the IRS in an attempt to extort money.

Stenehjem says residents across the state have reported having received threatening phone messages supposedly from the IRS. The message claims that there is a problem with the IRS and failure to return the call will lead to the individual’s arrest.

Stenehjem says the calls are designed to trick people into revealing sensitive personal and financial information such as their social security number and bank account or credit card information.
