04/18/2012 – Suspicious Calls – Sgt. Brown

An elderly resident reported receiving suspicious calls from a male with an accent attempting to get her personal information stating she won a lottery. The call originated in Jamaica and is associated with a common ruse to gain peoples personal information for the purpose of identity theft. Another complaint was also taken on another day where the intended victim was asked for their personal information so their health insurance could be updated. Again, this call originated in Jamaica and is a ruse to gain personal information.

Personal information should not be given out over the phone to any company. In the case of being advised of being a lottery winner, if you have not entered a lottery you could not have won, it’s that simple. Also persons asking you to enter a lottery, usually and “International Lottery” are scam artists. Participation in International Lotteries is prohibited by both state and federal law.
