IRS Phone scam continues

 Please be advised that, once again, citizens are receiving telephone calls and voicemail messages from individuals claiming to be with the IRS. According to Sheriff Craig Mast The callers are threatening people with arrest, if they do not pay what they say are taxes owed.  Please know that the IRS will NEVER call individuals regarding taxes matters.


 If you receive such a telephone call, just hang up. Voice mail messages of the same type need to be disregarded and deleted.  The Oceana County Sheriff is saying that there is no use in reporting receipt of such scam phone calls, as there is nothing they can do about it at this time.  Citizens should never, give personal information over the telephone, whether it be bank account information, social security information, dates of birth, addresses.
