The Monroe Police Department has received several complaints from people saying that someone claiming to be from the IRS has contacted them. The caller says a sum of money must be paid urgently or the recipient will be arrested.  Police are reminding residents that the IRS does not call people, nor do they threaten to arrest.  Immediate payment will not be demanded, the IRS will first send a bill in the mail if you owe money and will not require you to pay in a certain way--such as with a prepaid debit card.
