TELEPHONE SOLICITATION FRAUD - Monday, November 7, 2016
ASSUMPTION – Sheriff Leland Falcon once again is warning residents of fraudulent telephone solicitations that are being reported throughout the parish.
The latest scheme involves persons identifying themselves as representatives of Publishers Clearing House. The callers then solicited money, bank account and personal information after telling potential victims they had won money and /or a car.
The Sheriff warns that these are illegal solicitations aimed at stealing your money.
DO NOT PROVIDE ANY INFORMATION TO THE CALLER. You should contact the Sheriff’s Office at (985) 369-2912 to report any suspected activity.
