Electric Bill Scam - Altamont Area

The Effingham County Sheriff's Office received a message from the Altamont Police Department warning of an electric bill scam. A caller claiming to be with the Electric Department contacted a potential victim by phone and told them their electric bill was past due and their service would be shut off if the balance was not paid immediately. Since the call was placed to the potential victim after normal business hours, they were instructed to go to the local Casey's General Store and purchase a prepaid card to act as payment - the only payment the caller would accept.

No Electric Department or Cooperative would ever call someone demanding payment in this fashion. If you receive a call similar to this do not provide any financial information and contact your local Police. Criminals who commit these acts of fraud are continuously working to create new ways to convince people to send them their money. Do your best to remain informed and vigilant.

Internal Revenue Service – Phone Scam

The tax season will soon be upon us and we have started fielding calls from concerned citizens after they have received a telephone call from someone claiming to be an IRS representative. Often times the caller suggests an arrest warrant is ready to be issued if you do not comply with their instructions. These types of calls are particularly frustrating to Law Enforcement because they often come from outside the United States and are generated by criminal organizations in a foreign country. Their main goal is to obtain your financial information or convince you to wire money to avoid arrest. You may immediately think these scams are too unrealistic to fall for, but these people can be very convincing.

The Internal Revenue Service never makes initial contact to taxpayers by telephone to ask you for financial information. I pulled the following from the Internal Revenue Service website, .

"You receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from the IRS but you suspect they are not an IRS employee ... 1. Record the employee's name, badge number, call back number and caller ID if available.
2. Call to determine if the caller is an IRS employee with a legitimate need to contact you.
* If the person calling you is an IRS employee, call them back.
* If not, report the incident to TIGTA and to us at (Subject: 'IRS Phone Scam')"

Please be wary of anyone who calls you unsolicited and asks for personal or financial information. Please also remember, these individuals spend a great deal of time creating new and convincing ways to defraud you of your savings. They can be convincing and they only have to persuade a percentage of their victims to be profitable.

If you believe you have been the target of a scam notify your local Law Enforcement to receive information on how to protect your identity. An excellent source of information is posted on line by the Federal Trade Commission at
