Richmond Police have received several complaints about a phone scam with the caller identifying themselves as representatives from the IRS. The caller utilizes a computer masked voice and tells the potential victim, “Trying to reach you. This call is officially final notice from IRS Internal Revenue Service and the reason of this call is to inform you that IRS is filing lawsuit against you to get more information about this case file. Please call immediately on our department number XXX_XXX_XXXX . I repeat XXX_XXX_XXXX. Thank you.”
The numbers utilized in the message appear to be Magic Jack numbers and change often.
Citizens should be aware that no governmental agency would notify citizens of such action with a computer generated call or a call requesting any personal information or money.

In the coming days many of us will travel tens, hundreds, or in some cases thousands of miles to join family and friends in celebrating another Thanksgiving. But amid the turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, and football it’s important to remember the times of greatest thanks for our country, those times when we as a nation and people faced great adversity.
When the first settlers arrived in New England in the early 1600’s, they left in part because they were seeking a new life. But those early years they faced great adversity, from starvation to disease. Even though our ancestors faced tremendous challenges, they never stopped being thankful for what they had, and the Continue reading In Times of Adversity, Our Nation Has Always Given Thanks
Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell made the following statement tonight after Democrats defeated legislation to approve construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline:
“Tonight, Senate Democrats once again stood in the way of a shovel-ready jobs project that would help thousands of Americans find work — a remarkable stance after an election in which the American people sent a clear message to Congress to approve serious policies like the Keystone XL Pipeline and get the Senate working again. Unfortunately, many Senate Democrats failed to hear that message. But once the 114th Congress convenes, the Senate will act again on this important legislation, and I look forward to the new Republican majority taking up and passing the Keystone jobs bill early in the New Year.”
