Willmar Police warn of new scam

WILLMAR — Another new scam has reached our area, according to the Willmar Police Department.

According to a post on the department’s Facebook page, the department has received reports of people receiving what appears to be a legitimate email from the IRS about crediting their tax refund directly to their credit card. This email asks for their Social Security Number and credit card information.

This is a fraudulent email and the Police Department advises citizens to not provide this information.

The email appears to be a legitimate website with IRS contact information. Use caution. The IRS does not refund to a credit card.
