Beware of Phone Scams
The police department in Lake Havasu City is asking the public to beware of recent phone scams that are hitting the Tri-State. Some of the scams involve callers saying they are from Publisher’s Clearing House, with phone numbers out of Jamaica. Another scammer tried to get remote access to someone’s computer, saying their computer had sent out an error message and the person on the phone was going to try to fix it. A common scam called the “grandparent scam” where someone calls and pretends to be a grandchild, telling them they’ve been in an accident or they’ve become incarcerated, asking for money to be wired quickly. And a scam that continues to be a problem is called the IRS Scam. It involves someone who claims they are from the IRS, who then tells the caller they have a bill and will be arrested, deported or lose their driver’s license unless they pay over the phone with a pre-paid debit card or wire transfer. Police say if you receive such a call, call another family member to be sure the call is legitimate and never ever wire money to someone you do not know. When in doubt, never give out your personal information, and report anything you feel is suspicious to the police or Attorney General’s office.
