Roswell Police Warning Residents of Phone Scam

ROSWELL POLICE ARE ALERTING RESIDENTS ABOUT ANOTHER PHONE SCAM. DARRELL MOODY HAS THE DETAILS…

RPD — INVESTIGATING REPORTS OF PHONE SCAMS TARGETING LOCAL RESIDENTS. IN THIS ONE, THE CALLER CLAIMS TO BE FROM THE PUBLISHER’S CLEARINGHOUSE SWEEPTSTAKES…BUT THIS ONE DOESN’T INVOLVE ANYONE SHOWING UP AT YOUR DOOR WITH A CAMERA, BALLOONS AND AN OVERSIZED CHECK. INSTEAD, THE CALLER TELLS THE RESIDENT THEY’VE WON A LARGE MONETARY PRIZE, BUT BEFORE THEY CAN RECEIVE THE MONEY, THEY NEED TO COVER SOME SORT OF FEE. INVESTIGATORS SAY THE CALLER DEMANDS PAYMENT IN THE FORM OF A GIFT CARD. IF YOU GET ONE OF THESE CALLS…HANG UP AND CALL ROSWELL POLICE.
