Scam Alert

The Crawford County Sheriff’s Office has taken recent fraud reports from individuals who have purported themselves to be IRS Agents. These “agents” instruct their victims to purchase prepaid money cards at local retailers. They then have the victims scratch off the security tape off of the back and read to them the PIN number associated with that card. Once the caller has the PIN number they can then use it as anyone would if they had the card in hand.

Please read this warning from the IRS for more information on these types of phone scams-
