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.
