   *** SCAM ALERT ***

The Barry County Sheriff's Office has been fielding a large number of calls referencing scam phone calls. 

If you receive a call from someone stating they are with the IRS, FBI, Social Security Administration or your Local Sheriff's Office please note that none of these agencies will contact you via phone for payment.  If there is a problem that needs to be resolved with any of these agencies, they will contact you through the US Postal Service. 

As an extra precaution, DO NOT EVER give out any personal information ie: Social Security Number, Date of Birth, Bank Account numbers etc.


Thank You,

Sheriff Boyd
