Phone Financial Scams Reported in Savannah - SCMPD

Monday, January 30, 2017 7:32 PM | DNA ADMIN Communications (Administrator)

Please be advised the number of phone financial scams reported here in Savannah are growing exponentially. Over the previous weeks, reports have been made by victims with wide ranges in age and education as well as diverse ethnicities. Please remind your constituents if contacted by a stranger or company to:

1 NOT give any PID (Personal Identification Data) including but not limited to SSNs, Birthdays, Driver’s License Numbers, etc…

2 NOT send any money to anyone who promises to reciprocate with a larger award amount

3 NOT provide any PID information for friends or family

If you suspect any fraud within a call,

1 DO get as much information as possible and tell them you will call THEM back

2 DO contact the company represented and see if there is a legitimate reason for them to contact you

3 DO contact the BBB or Chamber of Commerce for direction


Hope this helps and if any questions please reach out.
