State Police warn of phone scam

PAW PAW (WKZO) -- Michigan State Police out of Paw Paw are warning people of a new phone scam. Lieutenant Dale Hintz says that people are getting calls from someone claiming to represent organizations that either collect debts or pay contest winnings. The state police recently got a call from someone who was contacted by a man who said he represents "The American Law Enforcement Company." That person told the would-be victim that he owed the company money, and that he should wire the amount over immediately. The caller also asked for personal information. Needless to say, it was all a scam, police remind people not to fall for such calls. Hintz says that some signs such a call is a swindle are that the caller claims you must "act now or the offer will expire"...you've won a free gift or money, but have to pay shipping or handling charges...or you must send money or provide a bank account number to receive some offer you've never heard of. Police say it's best to just say "No, thank you," and hang up on such unexpected calls.
