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. 

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 on Facebook now where people are using Facebook Messenger, messaging people about information to get money from your  friends on Facebook.
