IRS phone scam comes to Saint Jo

The Saint Jo Police Department has fielded calls from several concerned citizens regarding a person identifying themselves with the Internal Revenue Service.

This person has called several Saint Jo residents, telling them they owed money and required them to pay immediately – or the resident would be arrested within two to four hours and all assets frozen.

Saint Jo Police emphasize the IRS doesn’t call people by telephone and will only correspond by mail.

If you receive one of these calls inform the police 1-940-995-2337.
