The best thing to do is simply hang up

Hardin County Sheriff’s Office has been receiving many complaints from people who receive calls from someone claiming to represent the Internal Revenue Service.  The caller claims that the call recipient is delinquent with IRS payments and must contact and/or make arrangements to pay the IRS immediately or face arrest.  This is a well-worn scam.  The IRS does not conduct this type of business by phone.  Should you receive such a call, the best thing to do is simply hang up.
