PUTNAM COUNTY, W.Va. (AP) - The Putnam County sheriff’s office is urging residents to be on the lookout for a phone scam.

WSAZ-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1NibxTv ) that the deputies say that some residents are getting calls from someone who claims they are with the IRS and says the resident owes overdue taxes.

The number that comes up includes an area code from Washington, D.C. The deputies say they believe the person who is calling is outside the U.S.

The deputies are encouraging residents to call the sheriff’s office if they receive such a call.
