A scam sweeping Pickens County now is for unknown person(s) to call a residence, and identify themselves as working with the Internal Revenue Service and then demanding the resident purchase a green dot money card and give them the account number to pay an “outstanding” debt to the IRS. These persons become belligerent and threaten to come to the home within minutes with local police to arrest them if they do not make the payment as demanded. Please do NOT cooperate with these people.
Yet another scam is when an unknown person calls and offers to install a free security system in exchange for placing a advertising sign in the yard. Do not exchange information with these unknown persons. Speak only with persons you have requested to speak with and persons you have verified yourself.
And, one more scam has appeared on Facebook. Unknown people are sending note to Facebook members stating they have US Grant money available to them, however, the person receiving the grant needs to provide funds so the IRS will release the Fed Ex delivery truck to bring the grant checks to them.
Another scam is when unknown persons are calling residents of Pickens County
