Ongoing Scams Throughout Parish - Monday, May 7, 2018

DATE:             MONDAY, MAY 7, 2018
TO:                  ALL MEDIA OUTLETS
FROM:            SHERIFF LELAND FALCON
SUBJECT:      ONGOING SCAMS THROUGHOUT PARISH

 

ASSUMPTION - Sheriff Leland Falcon takes this opportunity to remind residents to steer away from the many scams that are being circulated throughout our communities.

The more recent scams affecting areas in and around Assumption Parish include:

            *Callers from utility companies soliciting money to pay your overdue bill.

            *Callers trying to raise money for law enforcement agencies.  The legitimate fundraisers    for law-enforcement groups are done by mail.

            *Callers from Internal Revenue Service soliciting money to satisfy your delinquent taxes.  The IRS does not correspond by phone. 

            *Callers indicating that you failed to show up for jury duty and if you pay money you will be excused.

A good rule of thumb is to never give in to those making telephone solicitations.  Contact the Sheriff’s Office at (985) 369-2912 if you have any questions. 

 

Thank you, Sheriff Falcon
