Harriman police warn of phone scam

Local News

The Harriman Police Department is warning residents of another phone scam.

Officers say the scammers claim to be with the Harriman Police Department or the Roane County Sheriff’s Office and claim to have an arrest warrant for not paying taxes.

Harriman police say they will never have an arrest warrant for anyone not paying taxes to the IRS. The IRS also will not call you to say you owe money that must be paid right away.
