Notice to Citizens: Nation-wide telephone scams
I would like to notify the general public about the nation-wide telephone scams making the rounds again. One of these scams is when you receive a call from someone identifying themselves as the IRS. Do not respond to them in any way. The IRS does not make phone calls asking for money. The local police are NOT coming to your house as we do not enforce IRS statutes. This is a phone scam! Other scenarios include someone calling for your grandchild or other relative asking for money to get out of jail…. Do not give them ANY Information. This too is a scam! Never give any information over the phone unless you have asked them to call you first!
