STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV) -- A Staunton man said people called, claiming to be from the tax enforcement division, to tell him he owed taxes.
Jim Gibson said he doesn't have any tax debt.
So when callers threatened that marshals would show up to his house and arrest him, he called them back, knowing it was a scam.
Gibson said they told him he could put money on a Green Dot Money Pack card at Rite Aid and they would settle his debt for less.
The callers claimed he owed more than $2,000.
"And when I felt I had gone on as far as go with them, I wanted to shame them a little bit and told them they'd been played, been made a fool of, and to go out and get a real job," said Gibson.
Gibson reported the incident to the Augusta County Sheriff's Office and the attorney general's office.
He said the call came from California.
