Deputies keeping busy looking into scam phone calls

Posted by wlpo on May 26, 2016

Apparently the scammers are not giving up easy.

The La Salle County Sheriff’s Office has been getting several calls from people complaining they’ve been the target of phone scammers. Deputies say besides the ongoing IRS scam, the elderly are being called with the scammers claiming to be their grandchildren on vacation. The scammers claim they need bond money and are asking for payment using electronic or money card transfers.

Before sending any money, be sure to check with your family or the police. Money transfers are hard for police to track and could leave you without some cash.
