Public Service Announcement from the Bates County Sheriff's Office

Phone Scammers will be working overtime the next couple days. They know banks will be closed and you can’t confirm with the bank if the phone call is legitimate or not.

Please do not give personal information, credit card Info, bank info to unsolicited callers. You may also receive a text saying your package is waiting to be delivered. You only have to click the link attached to the text. This is a scam and it loads spy software into your device.

Remember if it’s too good to be true it probably is. Now is not a time to rush with the safety of your identity. It’s better to be a couple days late with a gift than spend the next year trying to get your identity or money back.

From our Family at the Sheriff’s Office to yours, we wish you a Safe and Merry Christmas.
