FROM:            SHERIFF LELAND FALCON
SUBJECT:      PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT – SCAM ALERT

 

 

NAPOLEONVILLE – Assumption Parish Sheriff Leland Falcon is informing residents of a scam wherein the Sheriff’s Office Substation phone numbers are being used by scammers to solicit money.  The caller claims to be from U.S. Legal Support and goes as far as to provide a fictitious case number to potential victims and an 800 number to call back.

 

This is a scam. The Sheriff’s Office does not solicit money by phone for fines or any other purpose, and has not delegated authority to any person, group or agency to do so.

 

If you receive these calls, do not respond and do not send money.

You are urged to call 985-526-1627, extension 235, or Sheriff’s Office Dispatch at 985-369-2912 to report any such activity.
