Sheriff's Department Warning of Scams

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is warning people about mail and phone scams in the area. This week the sheriff’s office has received several calls from citizens who are receiving phone calls from someone asking to verify Medicare or Medicaid information. The caller states they need the information so they may issue a new card. The sheriff’s office says to never give personal information over the phone if you receive the call. If you receive a call from someone stating that they are a credit card agency, government agency, etc, obtain the name of a contact person, hang up and call the number shown on your credit card, or look up the number listed for the agency in the phone book.
