Sheriff warns residents about new phone scam | Crime
If you get a call from the Dunkin County Prosecutor’s Office and you haven’t done anything wrong, hang up the phone.
Sheriff Bob Holder says someone is calling area residents claiming that they are wanted on criminal charges. The caller then asks for the person’s Social Security number and driver’s license number. To verify the information, the person is told to call a 1-900 number to speak with an attorney.
Don’t do it. The sheriff says it’s a scam.
Holder says there are a “number of scams” making the rounds. He urges residents to not give personal information to anyone over the phone.
