IRS SCAM ALERT

IRS SCAM ALERT

 

The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is receiving a high number of calls from citizens reporting recent contact by SCAMMERS claiming to be from the IRS. The scammers are basically demanding immediate payment to rectify a past due balance. Some have reported even being told local law enforcement would serve an arrest warrant if they did not comply.

The IRS does not work this way. Remember, very little if anything with the Federal government happens fast.

If you have fallen victim and sent money it is important you immediately notify your local law enforcement agency.  Otherwise simply hang-up if you receive such a call.

There are several variations to these types of scams. Our goal is to notify you in attempt to prevent anyone becoming a crime victim and help you keep your money! Be informed and stay safe.
