Possible Phone Scam

By  | 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- The Warren County Sheriff's Office wants to warn citizens of a scam.

The office says they've recently handled reports where people are claiming to be associated with the National Veteran's Committee.

They say the call originates from an automated message. The victim is then connected to a live person, if a donation request is accepted.

Sheriff Jerry "Peanuts" Gaines says, "I want all the citizens of Warren County to be aware of this scam and the other scams that exist to cause financial damage to people. Please don't release your financial information to anyone over the telephone. "

WCSO wants all citizens to know that this most certainly is a scam.

Anyone with questions is urged to contact WCSO at 270-842-1633.
