Scam alert

Mason County Sheriff Greg Powers states his department has received complaint calls about an apparent phone scam originating from New York, N.Y. Residents have received calls from a 646 area code, with an automated messages stating the caller is from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and a warrant for the arrest of the receiver of the call has been issued from the “department of tax and crime investigation.” The messages asks the person receiving the call to phone the number back to resolve the matter. The entire message appears to be false and some sort of scam.
