Students: Beware of scam targeting you

A national scam targeting college students consists of someone, identifying themself as an Internal Revenue Service employee, calling students and telling them that they own money to the IRS. The call asks for banking or credit card information. The best way to protect yourself is to never give out personal information, especially banking or credit card information, over the phone unless you have generated the contact.

If you believe you have been a victim of this scam, contact your local police agency.
