BEWARE OF PHONE SCAMS IN THE AREA!!!!
February 27, 2017
The Tishomingo Sheriff’s Department would like to remind our citizens of active Phone Scams that are continuing in our area. Several weeks ago, we informed you about a Phone Scam that was attempting to solicit money from individuals by falsely informing them that they have outstanding warrants that need to paid through Justice Court. The alleged “company” pretends to be a “Credit Service” type company. Now it seems another company is doing the same thing…only this time using the Mississippi Department of Human Services / Economic Assistance as “their” backdrop.
As of today, February 27, 2017, the office of the Mississippi Department of Human Services / Economic Assistance, has NOT CONTRACTED any company to solicit funds from citizens on their behalf. It appears that this is the same type of oversea organization that harassed the citizens of Tishomingo County the last time. We ask if these people call you, DO NOT GIVE THEM YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, and notify the Northern District of the Public Safety Office, Commissioner Brandon Presley with the caller’s information.
