Be Careful of Scams
Thursday, 23 January 2014 08:27
Area residents are reminder to be careful about scam intended to get them to send money to help out a young grandchild or niece or nephew who is supposedly in trouble at some location. Recently some calls have been generated in Canada and asking a grandparent for money to help them out with bail or some other emergency situation. Do not give out financial information over the phone or send money without checking out the facts first. Contact the person in trouble or family members to verify that it was that person who made the plea for help. Contact the Cherry County Sheriffs Office if you suspect a scam. 402 376 1890.
