New Scams Hit Prairie County

New and innovated scam calls are being received from Prairie County residents.

These calls are scaring some individuals as the scammers have started using the Prairie County Sheriff’s Department phone number. Also another scam from fake IRS callers is being circulated.

Both are telling residents they have a federal warrant or a certain type of warrant that needs to be paid immediately.

“If we have a warrant for you we are going to come see you in person,” Sheriff Hickman said. “We don’t call on the phone saying you have to pay this.”

Regular procedure is the sheriff’s department will personally come to the  person if they have a warrant.    MORE
