At least once a day, a resident contacts the Groton Town Police Department to report that someone claiming to be an IRS agent just called, or some another scam, said Officer Sean O’Brien.
As a patrol officer, O’Brien said, he alone has handled about a half dozen incidents in the past year in which community members were scammed. In one incident, a person granted remote access to his computer, and his bank accounts were wiped out.
