LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- A warning from Cape Police reminds residents that IRS scams are being reported in the area.

With tax season here, it's important to remember the IRS won't call, fax, or email you about money owed or fraud.

Police have released a screenshot of a robocall where someone claimed to be from the IRS.

Police are urging everyone to also remember that the IRS would never ask you to pay with something like gift cards.

If you get a call like this, just hang up.
