Crimes and Courts

There’s a new phone scam to warn you about.

According to Ohio County Sheriff Tom Howard, people across the county have been receiving calls from a California number claiming to be the IRS.

The scammers will say you owe money to the IRS and if you don’t pay immediately, a warrant will be issued for your arrest.

If you get a call like this know that it is a scam and this is not the way the IRS will conduct business.
