State Police are warning the public to watch out for a growing phone scam.

Police in Endwell and Owego say the scammer calls victims, posing as an IRS agent, and convinces them that they owe additional money on their taxes. The victims are then persuaded to buy a Green Dot MoneyPak card and to provide the card number and pin.
