According to the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office, a number of citizens have reported being contacted by the IRS and told to call 701-428-8115 or a warrant would be placed on them.

A second scam also being perpetrated on local residents involves rental properties. With this scam, people who are searching for rental homes are contacted and asked to provide personal information. The rentals they're seeking are actually homes for sale in the local area and not actually for rent.

The Gallatin County Sheriff's Office wants to make sure that you do not fall for these. Never provide your personal information to any individual or organization unless you know for sure their legitimacy.

If you believe you are being scammed, make sure you contact the Bozeman Police or the Gallatin County Sheriff's Office.
