|The Livingston County Sheriff reports they have received several complaints from citizens in regard to scam phone calls.|
Citizens have been receiving phone calls from a person claiming to be with the IRS or other federal agency. The caller claims that the citizen has an outstanding warrant for their arrest, and, needs a lawyer, because they owed back taxes.
Yet another scam in the Livingston county area includes calls from various 800 numbers (800-266-2012, 800-250-2403, 800-304-3183, 800-304-7876) claiming to be from ATT&T. The callers indicate they are giving customers one hundred or five hundred dollars credit on their phone bills if customers go to the website www.attgoesfree, and, enter their account information to win.
The website is not a legitimate AT&T website, rather, it is a scam set up to get personal information.
