The Henry County Sheriff today is warning folks of a telephone scam that has been circulating the area. The caller identifies as a representative from the Internal Revenue Service. According to the sheriff, the callers use intimidation tactics and tell residents that money is owed in back taxes. To avoid being placed in jail, the caller says immediate payment is needed and that they will take credit card information. You should know that it doesn’t happen that way, and it’s a scam according to the sheriff. Do not give any personal information or make any kind of payment over the phone. The IRSwill not contact anyone like that. Anyone who has questions about this scam should contact their local law enforcement agency.
