Beware Of Caller Scam

Published on July 24, 2014 by Larry Crippen

The Walker County Sheriff’s Office would like to inform citizens to be aware of a current scam that is taking place locally. Numerous people in the community have been receiving automated phone calls. The caller says that they are from a local financial institution and that your account has been locked, suspended or deactivated and asks the caller to press “1” and enter account information, press “2,” etcetera. You should never give out any personal information unsolicited.

The Sheriff’s Office would like to remind citizens that scams are constantly evolving. If you believe you may have become a victim and you think your personal information has been breached, contact your financial institution and local law enforcement.
