Roswell PD: Watch out for “loyalty grant” scam

Roswell Police want people to know about a new scam.

They say it features the federal government supposedly handing out money in a unique way.

Police claim someone received a phone call saying he had a “loyalty grant” of $9,000 on his way for staying out of trouble.

However, the caller said he would have to give 200 dollars of his own money to cover the transfer.

Police say this resident didn’t go for it.

If something like this comes your way, then contact the Federal Trade Commisson and the Consumer Protection Division at the state attorney general’s office.
