scam alert 277e0

Thursday, June 7th, Sheriff Bill Overton warned Franklin County residents of a new scam attempt our office is hearing about.

The perpetrators are wanting these cards to be as high as $1,500.00. You are given a number to call where, supposedly, you will be told where to mail these money cards. Be wise, don't be the next victim of scammers! On this website, see "View All Flyers Here". Scroll down to "Scammers" and see more information about this type crime.
