Scam

phonescam.jpg    A phone scam has made its way back into the area. The Craighead County Sheriff's Office received a report alleging the caller says he is from Medicare is offering "free" items along with a back brace, all you have to do is send him a money order for $19.95. This guy doesn't take no for an answer, and will start talking rough and threaten to stop your Medicare benefits.

   Remember:

  • It's not free if you have to send someone money.
  • Government agencies will not call you and offer free items.
  • Never give personal information over the telephone.
  • If you doubt the authenticity of the call, hang up. Call the office number listed in the White Pages.
  • When a caller becomes belligerent, hang up!

If you have been a victim of a scam or have received any calls you believe are scams, call the Craighead County Sheriff's Office at 870-935-4551 or the Eastern District Office at 870-237-4511.
