There at it again Phone Scammers are trying to tell you won money or you owe money either way they are out to get your money! Recently the Hinds Countly Sheriff’s Office has seen an uptick in the number of complaints where people have been scammed over the phone by someone claiming to be with the Sheriff’s Office. Typically the caller claims the victum owes money for old fines and a warrant has been issued for their arrest. When confronted with possibly being arrested victims have have shared banking information and in a lot of cases perchasing Green Dot Money Pack cards to cover the old fine and in the process losing thousand of dollers. The Hinds County Sheriff’s will never call you asking for money or personal information over the phone. Sheriff Victor Mason said these scammers can be pretty convincing, one scammer told a would be victim that if they did not pay up he would be picked up. He also used a local judge’s name. and in another instance the number used to acll the victim was traced back to a jail in Georgia. The take away here is when in doubt check it out! get a number and call someone you trust. but don’t give out info over the phone to someone you don’t know.
