Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp is warning citizens of a current scam occurring on seniors as Mother’s Day approaches. Seniors are receiving calls saying that their children have purchased a life alert system for them at the cost of $400.00 as a Mothers Day gift. The scamster then tells the seniors that there is a monthly fee of $30.00 and that they would need a credit card number to make the monthly payments.
Calls have been received by seniors living in both Christian and Shelby County. Sheriff Kettelkamp would like to remind seniors to never give out their credit card information or any bank information to anyone. Please notify your local Law Enforcement Agency if you have any information concerning scams occurring in your area.
