IRS phone scam returns

Please be advised that the IRS “lawsuit” scam is making the rounds in the county again.
A reader called in to report the name and number that appeared on her caller ID: Shawn Miller; 347-349-7449.

If you receive a call from someone claiming to represent the IRS, Social Security, Medicare or any federal agency, do not give out your personal info.

These agencies will not contact you by phone or email.

Scammers are working overtime to try to find new “identity theft” tricks.
Don’t fall for them.

Report any suspicious phone calls or emails to the sheriff’s department, 304-799-4445, to this newspaper or Allegheny Mountain Radio.

We can’t stop them, but we can warn our neighbors.
