PHONE SCAMS CONTINUE

Sheriff Tate Lawrence said he continues to get reports of attempted phone scams. These recent scams are from callers who claim to be from the IRS and that if a certain amount of unpaid taxes are not immediately paid then they will be immediately arrested by the sheriff’s office. Lawrence said to ignore the calls because first the IRS does not conduct their business by phone and secondly the sheriff’s office does not work with the IRS in collecting federal taxes.
