A sophisticated phone scam targeting taxpayers has recently been reported to Maine Revenue Service. The automated call claims to be from MRS and tells the taxpayer they overpaid taxes in 2016 and is owed a refund. They alter the caller ID to make it look like the call is coming from a legitimate State of Maine phone number. MRS will not call a taxpayer about a refund and has reported this incident to Maine State Police Computer Crimes Unit.
