Weather Alert

Thunderstorms & Poor Drainage Flooding Possible Today

Isolated instability showers will give way to a chance for thunderstorms this afternoon. While the overall threat for severe weather appears relatively low, one or two storms could produce gusty winds, large hail, and possibly very heavy rain. If heavy rain persists, or if multiple storms move over the same area, then low lying areas, and poor drainage locations, could experience flooding. A second round of late night storms may be possible, but the rain should clear off to the East after midnight.

The Bottom Line: IRS phone scam follow-up

Updated: Thursday, July 10 2014, 10:41 PM EDT
NISKAYUNA -- A follow-up to a Bottom Line Alert on a scam CBS 6 has been tracking for months:  The phone scam claiming to be the IRS, telling victims they need to pay up immediately - or else risk being arrested the same day.

That scam appears to be ramping up in the Capital Region, as Dori Marlin has heard from many viewers in the last week saying they've received such a call.

Dori even spoke with one Amsterdam man who says he lost $2,000 to the scam because he was trying to help his mother, who received one of the calls.

The Bottom Line once again? 

The IRS notifies people of unpaid taxes by mail, and not by phone - so if you get one of these calls, do not send any money.The Bottom Line: IRS phone scam follow-up
