Weather Alert

Bitter Cold Through Today With Snow Storm Chances Increasing For Sunday Night Into Monday

A very cold air mass combined with gusty winds through today will continue to lead to wind chills as low as -5 to -15 through this afternoon.  Then, tomorrow night through Monday, a large storm will track to the region's south, passing through the Tennessee valley and the Mid Atlantic region, then south of New England.  Storm track, as is typical, is not certain, but the latest signals continue to point to a storm track far enough north to bring accumulating snow to the region with a possibility for moderate to heavy amounts.  Keep up to date on the forecast through the weekend for more information on this developing snow storm.

The Bottom Line: IRS phone scam follow-up

Updated: Thursday, July 10 2014, 11:41 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
