Sheriff Warns Of New Scams

The Livingston County Sheriff’s Department has responded to several reports of scam attempts.  Sheriff Steve Cox says lately they have received reports that scammers have twisted their approach to citizens in an attempt to steal money.  The latest involves multiple people calling you with several variations but one person will work at getting only the name of your bank.

Cox says someone from your bank will call you to “verify” the financial transaction is legitimate while it is all a fraud.

Cox says the plan is to build trust with you to make it easier to steal your money.

Be careful of who you give your information to, and don’t be pressured by someone you don’t know.  If it doesn’t seem right, hang up.
