MUPD warns students of potential IRS scams

University of Missouri police reported on Thursday that officers took two reports about attempted scams.

Police said the students were contacted by a person claiming to be a member of the IRS and the FBI. The suspects attempted to get birth dates and social security numbers.

The suspects were also accused of attempting to get the students to purchase gift cards to pay a bill or face criminal charges.

Officers said they wanted to remind the student body and other residents that the government will never call and solicit personal information or money over the phone.
