Sheriff Loe wants the citizens of
Columbia County to be aware
of a telephone scam.
These callers are calling from (876) 796-3385 claiming you have won monetary prizes and/or cars or computers, all you have to do is send money via the various money transfer companies, such as Western Union or Green Dot. Please be aware that this is a scam.
It is your responsibility to notify the lottery and show proof with your winning ticket, and other agencies would not request that you send money first. Be careful about sharing personal information with these callers because they could be trying to get your personal information also.
Please contact your local law enforcement agency if you feel you've been a victim of a scam.
