The Kendall County Sheriff’s Office is warning residents of an ongoing telephone scam. Unknown individuals claiming to be an officer with the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office have been calling local residents. The individuals state that a “complaint had been filed with the IRS,” and to call a different phone number back or risk being arrested. 

The Kendall County Sheriff’s Office phone number may be displayed on the complainant’s caller ID, presumably by utilizing a common tactic among scammers called “Spoofing”, where through computer software; a specific telephone number will be displayed on the recipient’s caller ID. 

The Sheriff’s Office ensures residents that they are aware of this scam and that phone calls regarding “IRS complaints” are never handled by the sheriff’s office. Personal information should never be given out over the phone.

Should citizens receive a phone call from an individual claiming to be with the Kendall County Sheriff’s Office regarding IRS business, the sheriff's office asks that they contact call (630) 553-5856 to verify the authenticity of the deputy contacting them.
