MCSO warns of phone scam
The Monroe County Sheriff Office warns residents to be aware of a phone scam. According to a statement from the MCSO, the department has received several reports of residents receiving calls from phone number 876-429-2512. The caller identifies the company as “Carrier of Delivery Service.”
The caller then will state that the resident has won a prize, but will have to pay shipping and handling. The phone number shows the calls are coming from Jamaica. Most of the calls that have been reported to the MCSO have been made to elderly residents.
The MCSO would like to remind all residents to never give out any personal information over the phone such as social security numbers or bank information. If you are a resident of Monroe County and have received a call please notify the MCSO at 369-2468.
