Tax scam alert

The Pikeville 911 Public Safety Center has received a complaint of a Phishing Scam involving Tax Returns.

Victims are receiving calls from a "Private Number" and the caller is advising the Victim that an issue with their tax return has came up and they are asking for the Victim's Bank Account Number to have the tax return deposited correctly.

The Pikeville Police Department is advising anyone who may receive a call similar to this, not to release any account information.

Check with your Tax preparer to verify the validity of the call.
