The caller instructed the shift manager to remove money from the safe, take the money into the office and count it. The caller asked to be advised of the amount as well as the store deposit procedures. The caller stated an IRS agent would be contacting the manager with further instructions, along with a 4-digit code of a secure location, as to where to take and deposit the money.
