A scam caller has been "spoofing" a local business name and is placing calls to elderly people in our area. Residents answer the call because they recognize the phone name/ID, but the actual call is a scam.
Never provide information to anyone who randomly calls on the phone. If you think it may be legitimate, hang up, look up the number of the legitimate business, and call them directly, especially if they say they are from the police, jail, bank, credit care, or other institution. Do not let these scammers pressure you into providing information on the spot.
