Sheridan Police warn of telephone scam

(Sheridan, Wyo.) — The Sheridan Police Department says Sheridan area residents are once again getting phone calls from an individual or individuals stating they are from the IRS and they are trying to collect a debt. The IRS communicates by certified mail and/or court ordered, hand delivered paperwork, according to Lt. Tom Ringley of the Sheridan Police Department. Any attempt to collect money by phone or email is most likely a scam. When in doubt, it is best to not give out any personal information over the phone or internet and do not send money to anyone you don’t personally know, Ringley says. #dally #news
