There's a new phone scam making the rounds in Northern Colorado. Scammers are calling saying they're from the IRS or a utility company and demanding immediate payment for back taxes or unpaid bills. And if the victim questions them, they hang up and immediately call back pretending to be police. The Larimer County Sheriff's office says you should take down the scammers name and number and then call the actual agency yourself. The IRS and utilities will not demand immediate payment, especially using a prepaid card.
