A word from the Woodson County Sheriff’s office about more scam phone calls. Some citizens have received calls from people claiming to be from the IRS. The caller says that the person will be arrested unless they comply with instructions. Authorities want you to know that if you receive one of these calls it is a scam. Do not follow through with what they are asking, and do not give them any personal information.
