New phone scam being reported locally
06/22/2018

(KNZA)--The Brown County Sheriff's Office is warning residents of a new phone scam circulating in the area.

Sheriff John Merchant says a Horton resident recently received a phone call, which on their caller ID showed Horton Police and also showed the actual Horton Police phone number.

The resident was informed they had a warrant issued by the IRS and if they didn't pay $1,000 with Google play cards, they would be arrested.  

The resident was to pay the money due using a phone transaction.

Merchant urges residents not to give out personal information over the phone or computer.  Also he says to never trust your caller ID to identify a caller or phone number as they can be modified to show any person or telephone number.

Merchant says if you have questions or become a victim of a scam, notify your local law enforcement at once.
