SCAM WARNING - JANUARY 6, 2014
Monday, 06 January 2014 15:54

Sheriff Robert A. Dekker would like to remind the citizens of Millard County to be mindful and cautious when receiving suspicious phone calls especially when the caller is asking for personal information.  Most of these scam phone calls come from fictitious phone numbers.  Some of the scammers claim to be from credit card departments, banks or other financial institutions claiming there is a problem with your account and asking you to verify information they should already have on file.  Other scammers claim to be family members who are in other countries and are in some type of distress and need money wired to them. 

 

Please be very careful when giving any information out over the phone, especially if you can not verify the identity of the person on the other end.  

 

Safe Tip

When you call 9-1-1, stay on the line with the dispatcher until you are told by him or her to hang up. Your assistance may be required to guide deputies and other emergency personnel to your location.
