More scams circulating locally
01/23/2020

(KNZA)--Scams continues to circulate around the local area, with Brown County Sheriff John Merchant alerting residents to not provide any financial information to the scammers

Merchant, in a release, said he’s received reports of text messages being sent to cell phones claiming that the recipient’s Amazon purchase has been compromised, and a phone number is provided for the person to call. Merchant says not to call the number, as it’s clearly a scam. Similar emails are also being reported, and Merchant says to ignore, and delete, them.

Another attempt at financial information comes in the form of false calls claiming to originate from the Social Security Office, with the caller claiming the recipient’s social security number has been compromised.

Merchant said that office will never place such phone calls, and no information should be provided.
