Scam artist continues calls even after police are called
Man claims to work for IRS
MADISON, Wis. — An overseas scam artist isn’t letting a call to the police stop his attempt at convincing a Madison woman that she has an unpaid loan.
The 31-year-old Congress Avenue woman told police the man is pushy and rude and claims to be an IRS agent named Gary Jones. He asked her to purchase a Green Dot prepaid debit card to cover an unpaid loan.
The woman said the man speaks with an Indian accent and is calling from 727-231-1572, which police said is reported to be associated with other scam phone calls.
