Florissant police have a warning for city residents.
Police say that scammers have been posing as IRS officials and calling residents. An investigation led police to a phone number that originates in the Buffalo, New York area. People from around the country have been getting calls from the number. The person on the other end of the line says they are with the IRS and the victim owes money.
The Florissant Police remind everyone--be aware of the scam and do not give out personal information over the phone without confirming the caller's identity.
Police were able to identify the phone number that the scammers were calling from as: (716) 242-7149

The St. Louis Public School District will adjust the 2013/2014 school calendar to make-up two of the six instructional days lost due to inclement weather this winter. Snow, ice and extreme cold temperatures resulted in the District cancelling classes on January 6 – 10 and January 21.
The District will cancel a Professional Development day scheduled for Friday, February 14, 2014 and use this day as a full instructional day for students and staff.
The District is also cancelling the Parent/Teacher Conference Day scheduled for Friday, March 14, 2014 and will use this day as a full instructional day for students and staff.
The 3rd Quarter report cards will now be sent home to parents via students on March 14.
As there are approximately two months of potential winter weather remaining, the District will withhold making a decision on the remaining four snow days until the threat of additional winter weather passes.
The adjusted calendar is now available on the District website: www.slps.org.
