IRS phone scam at NMU

Oct 5, 2017

MARQUETTE, MI--   The NMU Public Safety Department is warning the campus community about a phone scam going around. 

Officers have received several complaints from students that someone using the Public Safety phone number is contacting them. The caller says they’re either an officer or a federal agent and have a warrant for the student’s arrest for tax evasion. The caller usually has a heavy accent.

Public Safety says such calls are a scam and no one should give out any personal details if they get one. They say NMU will never ask for personal information over the phone or by e-mail.

To report a call or for more information, call 227-2151.
