Bulloch County Sheriff Lynn Anderson is advising everyone to be wary of a scam. Anderson said his office has received several reports from people who say they have been contacted by persons speaking with a foreign accent and claiming to be representatives of various federal agencies. The callers attempt to obtain personal information and banking information, allegedly so that they can reissue a Medicaid card, Social Security Card, etc. Anderson said "Of course this is a scam. Do not provide anyone with personal information over the phone."
Anyone who has been taken in by the scam and has provided such information to a caller, contact your bank or financial institution immediately. You may also want to file a report with the law enforcement agency which works your neighborhood.
