Police warn South San Francisco residents about phone scams 

South San Francisco Police are warning residents about an increase in telephone scams targeting citizens.

In a recent case, a caller told a resident he owed money to the IRS, according to the South San Francisco Police Department.

Police said similar scams include suspects claiming to be IRS agents and telling victims they owe a large amount of money in back taxes that needs to be paid on a pre-loaded debit card or through a wire transfer.

Police ask anyone who has been the victim of a similar type of scam to contact the police department at (650) 877-8900.
