Jasper Police: Scammers Using Local Phone Numbers

Jasper (NNDC) – The Jasper Police Department says scammers are getting more and more creative in their efforts to get personal information or even cash from unbeknowing victims.

JPD says scammers are even using local numbers when contacting local residents and then asking residents to verify their social security numbers or other personal information.

The Jasper Police Department is urging all to citizens to never give out personal information over the phone.  Police say if you receive these unsolicited calls asking for personal information, please hang up immediately.

JPD says some of the numbers the scammers are using are associated with actual local businesses… one call from a scammer to a local resident was disguised as being from HLS Health and Wellness in Jasper.
