“Don’t fall for it”, the words of Alexander County Sheriff Chris Bowman. Bowman said his office had a number of complaints last week about calls from someone identifying themselves as an Internal Revenue Service agent. This type of scam is an old one but sadly people still fall for it. Sheriff Bowman reminds citizens the IRS does not contact people over the phone for collections. Some sophisticated scammers can even have IRS show up on your caller ID. The Sheriff asks that if you get such a call, hang up and NEVER GIVE THEM ANY PERSONAL INFORMATION such as Social Numbers or access to you bank account.
