(ATLANTIC) The Cass County Sheriff’s Office would like the public to be aware of a new twist on an old scam that is going around.
Authorities say they have had a report of an automated call telling about the negative effects of a prescription drug. It gives you the option to press “1” to be taken off the call list and when you do the automated operator requests your social security number, date of birth and name.
The Sheriff’s Office says if you receive such a call, simply hang up. Do not give your information to the caller, whether it is a human or computer operator.
