SUBJECT: PHONE SCAMS
ASSUMPTION PARISH – As we approach the holiday season,
we have seen a very significant uptick of telephone scammers misrepresenting
themselves in an effort to steal your money.
We have had complaints of callers saying they are from
utility companies trying to collect overdue bills, callers representing
themselves to be from police associations, the IRS, extended warranty companies
as well as numerous other misrepresentations.
As always, Sheriff Falcon discourages all residents
from making any payments in reference to any telephone solicitations.
If you have any questions, please contact the
Sheriff’s Office at (985) 369-7281.
