Attorney General Mark Brnovich today is warning Arizonans of an alarming new phone scam in which con artists pose as representatives of the Attorney General’s Office to steal money from consumers.

AG Brnovich Issues IRS Phone Scam Alert Phoenix, AZ – Attorney General Mark Brnovich issued a scam alert today warning of an ongoing and very aggressive telephone scam that appears to be intensifying in Arizona. Approximately 70 IRS telephone scam complaints were filed with the Attorney General’s Office last month. The IRS phone scam mainly targets seniors. Scammers pose as agents with the Internal Revenue Service or the US Treasury Department. Victims are threatened with arrest if they don’t make an immediate payment for taxes or fines owed.

Attorney General Mark Brnovich issued a scam alert today warning Arizonans of an aggressive fake lottery scam targeting seniors. The scam starts with a phone call from a person who falsely claims to be affiliated with Mega Millions. Seniors are told they’ve won the Mega Millions lottery and are asked to pay thousands of dollars upfront in order to claim their prize money. The scammer even offers to pick the victim up and drive them to the bank.

Once again, we have a few reports of scammer calling an unsuspecting victim with the ruse that they have a warrant that needs to be paid for. The most recent victim was taken for almost $500. The scammer called and represented himself as a member of the sheriff's office and coaxed the victim to "payoff a warrant" with a money card. *No law enforcement agency will ever try to collect on a warrant or debt over the phone...ever.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich is warning consumers to be cautious of misleading websites that falsely appear to be affiliated with the Arizona Department of Transportation’s Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) or the State of Arizona. Consumers who need to access online MVD services should do so at the government’s authorized website – www.servicearizona.com.
