Dare Community Crime Line is a vital bridge between the Dare County community of citizens and law enforcement officials. We actively facilitate neighborhood safety and security by providing an anonymous, safe way to report suspected crimes and by financially rewarding those tips that lead to an actual arrest.
Police in Virginia Beach are investigating a scam involving phone calls from a person posing as an Internal Revenue Service agent trying to collect back taxes. The calls, often originating from a Seattle area code, threaten that an arrest will be made if back taxes are not paid quickly. The caller tells people they can avoid arrest by buying a prepaid debit card from a store and reading the authorization number to the caller.
