Sheriff reports IRS scam

Posted on Monday, August 18, 2014 at 9:21 am

The Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office was contacted by a citizen informing them he received a phone call from an automated service informing him he is being sued by the IRS and he needed to return their call. Although the IRS has been a topic of debate in recent months, the federal agency does NOT operate in such a manner. Do not return the call, it is considered a scam.

Thus far, it does not appear to be widespread problem in Lincoln County but please be aware. Please share this announcement with your friends.
