Scammers are targeting Polk County residents claiming to represent the IRS and making threats according to Polk County Sheriff Scott Sawyer.
"We’ve had several reports of the IRS scammers calling Polk County residents today. It is a scam. The IRS does not do business over the phone. They will not threaten to send the Sheriff to arrest you. They do not take overdue payments in the form of green dot or Google play cards. If they call you don’t give them any information and hang up on them."
Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge provides more information on common scams on the Attorney General's website.
