From the Washington County Sheriff

Written by Theresa Rose on December 14, 2015

It’s that time of year again for the IRS scam. Residents throughout the state are receiving a phone call from someone claiming to be with the IRS. They will mention either there is a lawsuit or warrant for the person’s arrest. Caller ID is even showing the call coming from Washington DC.

Do not return the phone call if a message is left. If you do answer, do not give any information and it is best to just hang up.

The IRS will not call you or email you. If you did give any information please contact your local law enforcement and let them know.
