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.
