The Sheriff’s Office has received several reports of ongoing telephone scams. Two of the most prevalent are calls from someone stating they are from the IRS and the other is someone reporting they are in jail.
The IRS scam involves a caller stating you must send money within a certain period of time or be arrested. The IRS will not contact you by telephone. Additional information and tips regarding contact from the IRS can be obtained on their website at www.irs.gov and go to Help on the screen.
The second scam is a caller stating they are in jail and need you to send them money. Often the caller will state they are a family member and may have a name that fits someone in your family. Calls from inmates in the Saline County Jail have a recording stating that is where the call is originating. If you have questions about someone being in jail in Saline County, you may call the office at 660-886-5511 or access the current inmate list on our website under Jail. If the person says they are in another county, it would be best to contact that jail directly or call our office and we can help with getting contact information for that agency.
