(Markesan) Markesan Police are cautioning residents after receiving calls from three residents about scam phone calls. Scammers had called them posing as an IRS or Social Security Administration worker. Phone numbers that came up on caller ID were from Texas and the Washington DC-areas. Police remind residents that callers can spoof phone numbers that look like they are calling from anywhere. Markesan Police say if you do not recognize a number, or get a prerecorded call, the best thing to do is hang up.
