MISSOULA – The Missoula County Sheriff’s Office is issuing a warning about a scam that has recently been making the rounds.
The Sheriff’s Office reports they received a report on Tuesday from an individual who said they received a call from their daughter who claimed to have been in an accident and was crying and very upset.
“Scammers will do anything to have you give them just enough information to get your money$!! Today, we had an individual call that stated they received a call from their daughter, who claimed to have been in an accident and was crying and very upset. Immediately following that call was a call from a lawyer asking for bail money$$$. The “lawyer” did try to negotiate the price down when the person would not pay! Please do NOT give out personal information that would allow scammers access to credit cards and bank accounts. Law Enforcement or the IRS will not call you about a warrant or ask you for money.”
