PHONE SCAMS CONTINUE

Area folks continue to receive phone scam calls ranging from callers saying they are from the IRS and unless money is mailed with the next day or so a warrant of arrest will be issued. Sheriff Tate Lawrence said the IRS does not collect money via phone and these calls are just another way for these low caliber people to get money dishonestly.

Another similar scam involves the caller representing themselves to be from the Publishers Clearing House  advises that you have won and enormous amount of money and to claim this money you must first provide certain personal information and send them an administrative fee. This too is dishonest people trying to get your money.
