Knox County Sheriff David Shaffer issued a statement today warning of a phone scam targeting local residents.

Over the last couple of weeks the Knox County Sheriff’s Office has been receiving information from local residents concerning suspicious phone calls. Usually the scam involves claiming the victim owes money to the Internal Revenue Service.

They demand the call recipient pay immediately and may request credit card information over the phone. They often make threats about contacting local law enforcement agencies to have you arrested.

The caller may sound legitimate, and even have some personal information about the victim. They try and trick the victim into sharing private information.

the Sheriff's Office urges people to not give their personal or credit card information over the phone, especially if they did not initiate the call.

Those who have been contacted by the scammers or have information about this scam may contact the Knox County sheriff's Office at 740-397-3333.
