Phone scammers targeting Acadia Parish, sheriff says

Acadia Parish Sheriff K.P. Gibson wants everyone to be aware of an aggressive phone scam targeting Acadia Parish citizens where the caller ID /telephone number has been altered to look like it’s coming from the Acadia Parish Sheriff’s Office.
“These scammers are using intimidation factors by telling victims they owe taxes and must pay promptly through a pre-loaded debit card or wire transfer or they’ll be arrested,” said Gibson. “In some instances victims may be told they have a refund due to trick them into sharing private information.”
