Man poses as IRS on the phone to create response

EPHRATA – An Ephrata police officer received a different message when he called a phone scam artist.

The scam began with a call to a man on Crest Drive. A voicemail message said it was the IRS calling and asking him to call them back “urgently,” according to Ephrata police records. The man called the police instead.
