Scam Report

August 30, 2013

The Valley City Police Department warns residents of a reported scam.
A Valley City resident reported on Wednesday he received a call from a caller who advised him of an IRS settlement. Later he received a call from the Department of Motor Vehicles in Valley City telling him that his driver's license was revoked because of a letter from an attorney.
The first calls came from (530) 567-2511 and (530) 235-6505. The last call came from 845-3812 which is the DMV's phone number but police confirmed the DMV did not place the call and that the man's license was current.
An Internet search revealed the phone numbers are listed to a Red Bluff Cal. man named Kevin Peterson, though the scammer uses a variety of names. The scammer frequently tells potential victims he is an IRS agent or an official from another government agency.
Anyone who receives a possible scam call should contact the VCPD at (701) 845-3110.
