The situation is a familiar one.
You receive a phone call from someone at the Internal Revenue Service, which your caller ID confirms, claiming that if your back taxes aren't paid, you'll be going to jail.
Maybe it's a call from someone claiming to be a family member who is on vacation in a foreign country and needs money wired immediately.
In both cases, someone is trying to steal your identity.
Identity theft was the topic of the Feb. 19 Jim Thorpe Community Watch meeting at Phoenix Fire Company along West Broadway.
