State police warn of phone scam
PAW PAW, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - We've got a news alert to report as state police from the Paw Paw Post say they are investigating some new phone scams.
One report involved a caller who said he was from the "American Law Enforcement Company."
The report says the caller attempted to get the victim to wire him money and give him personal information.
In a separate call the person was told he won a foreign lottery. The caller asked the citizen to wire him the "tax amount" that was owed.
They're reminding people to watch for the warning signs, like being told to "act now" or the offer will expire.
Beware anything that says free, gift, vacation or prize, but you have to pay the tax.
Never send money, credit card or give bank information over the phone.
