The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department says residents have been contacted by individuals attempting to solicit personal information in another scam. The first step of the scam is to receive a card in the mail supposedly from Wal-mart and Visa that says “Final Notice”. It is specifically addressed to you and says:
“An unclaimed reward worth up to $100.00 in savings is being held for you at our main distribution center. To receive this reward, please call us now, toll-free, at 1-855-953-3223. WARNING: Failure to call will result in an AUTOMATIC FORFEITURE OF THIS REWARD. Please call at once for details.”
Once the number is called you will talk to multiple individuals who will attempt to solicit personal information from you and some type of payment to be able to claim the “free gift”.
The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office continues to warn everyone, DO NOT GIVE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION TO ANYONE THAT YOU DO NOT KNOW, whether over the phone, text, email or any other way.
