The Pickens County Sheriffs Office has Recent Reports of a Scam, of 
Emails saying you are having issues with your computer, posing as 
Microsoft, and asking for your IP address, then taking over your 
computer.

 

Pickens County Sheriff’s Office is actively seeking applicants for the 
position of Corrections Officer.  Benefits include paid vacation, sick 
time, health and dental insurance. Please come by the office for an 
application if you are interested. Office hours are 8-4 Monday through 
Friday.

 

Pickens County Sheriff’s Office asks Pickens County residents to call 
911 immediately whenever they see suspicious vehicles or people in 
your communities.

 

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.

 

Once again the scammers are striking.  There is a scam out now which 
appears to come from “Publishers Clearing House”.  Please do not 
deposit anything that appears to be a check and please do not reply to 
their requests for you to contact them in any way.  Publishers 
Clearing House will NOT contact you in that fashion.

 

A new scam happening in Pickens County is suspects are calling 
residents, pretending to be the funeral home. We believe they are 
reading the most recent obituaries and wanting to collect money from 
recent funeral expenses. Please contact the Pickens County Sheriff’s 
Office if this happens to you.

 

 

There is a new scam of Facebook now where people are using Facebook 
Messenger, messaging people about information to get money from your 
friends on Facebook.
