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.
