(ABC 6 News) -- A phone scam warning for residents in the Mason City area. 

Authorities say there have been a number of complaints about phone calls from an unknown person claiming to work for the Internal Revenue Service.  A male caller says the IRS will issue an arrest warrant for tax evasion unless you pay off your debt immediately.

Police do not know where the calls are coming from, but say the IRS does not work in this manner. 

Officials say never give any personal information to someone you don't know, and take precautions to protect your information.
