Scam alert


The Ida County Sheriff's Office has received several calls from county residents over the past three-days about an active on-going scam.

Citizens are receiving calls from individuals claiming to be IRS agents, or someone working for the IRS. They are told that a warrant has, or will be issued for their arrest, if they do not call a 1-800 number to get information.

This is a scam!  The IRS and no other government entity would contact you by phone and ask you to call a number back.

If you receive this call simply hang up and please contact the Sheriff's Office to report it.
