VVEC member target of possible telephone scam

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

Sgt. Jason Cummings of the Claremore Police Department said anyone who thinks they have been contacted by a scammer should contact their local police department or sheriff’s office.
“It is helpful to give law enforcement as much information as possible,” said Cummings. “The caller’s phone number may be blocked so it may show as ‘unavailable’ on Caller ID, but record the number if there is one. And never give out personal financial information such as credit or debit card or banking information to someone you don’t know.”
Individuals who feel they may be victims of a telephone scam can contact the Federal Trade Commission or the Office of the Oklahoma Attorney General.
