Here's the latest phone scam to hit the Gallatin Valley.

The following message was left on many voicemails across Bozeman on Friday morning. To some people it may sound like a legitimate message, calling attention to a legal matter that requires the person's attention.

We decided to call the number back. After initially being placed on hold, then having the call dropped, we called again.

The fake IRS hung up on us and in the end it was obviously a scam, but messages like these continue to hit people in the greater Bozeman area and it's important to remember to never give out any personal information to a stranger over the phone.

Thanks to Andrea in Bozeman for sending the scammer's voicemail along to us.
