Local police are warning of a phone scam being reported in the area.

From the Corinth police:

Be Aware Of Telephone Scams Going Around The Area!

We have had reports of people being contacted by someone claiming to be a relative that has been arrested and needing money. The scammers request the person send a money order or pre-paid card in order to assist their relative.

We have also had people calling claiming to be from the Social Security Administration and requesting Social Security Numbers.

DO NOT GIVE OUT ANY INFORMATION OR SEND ANY MONEY! IF YOU HAVE QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS ABOUT A CALL YOU RECEIVE CONTACT CORINTH PD OR YOUR LOCAL AUTHORITIES.
