D.A.: Phone scam targets Merced County immigrant communities

The Merced County District Attorney’s Office issued a warning this week about a recent telephone scam in Merced County that appears to target immigrant communities in particular. Callers tell residents they owe money – typically $7,000 – in back taxes to the Internal Revenue Service and are threatened with deportation, jail time and having their driver’s license revoked unless they pay up immediately, District Attorney Larry D. Morse II said in a statement.
