Virginia State Police warns of IRS phone cloning scam


The Virginia State Police have recently received calls from two Virginians and one New Yorker about IRS-impersonation telephone calls linked to a Virginia State Police Area 43 Office in Chatham. The scammers have cloned the state police office’s main number – (434) 432-7287 – as a tactic to help convince a caller that they are legitimate. This is a common ploy utilized by scammers as the annual IRS filing season comes to a close.

The Internal Revenue Service will never call to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer. Generally, the IRS will first mail you a bill if you owe any taxes.

A special touch

Children’s Theatre offers sensory-friendly shows

On a Saturday afternoon in August, Becky Ricker, a mother from Cumberland County, loaded her car with her 12-year-old daughter Hailey, Hailey’s best friend and her teacher and drove 50 miles to Henrico County for a performance of “The Golden Goose” at Virginia Repertory’s Children’s Theatre at Willow Lawn.
