The Maui Police Department issued an advisory warning the public to beware of phone scams reported by Maui residents.

“Recently there has been reports of individuals identifying themselves as a representative of the IRS. These individuals are saying there is an outstanding debt of back taxes that is owed immediately and if payment is not received you will be arrested,” according to information provided by Maui police.

Authorities advise the public not to give any information to these individuals.

Maui police also advise that there are other scams in which victims are asked to send money via Western Union to a specific address in order to claim a monetary prize.

Again, authorities advise not to disclose personal information and not to send any money for alleged promises of larger returns.
