Charlotte County Sheriff's Office Warns of New Scam

Charlotte County, VA - A warning straight from the Charlotte County Sheriff's Office about a new scam.

They've gotten calls from some elderly folks that say someone has been posing as a Social Security administrator.

Investigator Howard Hobgood says this person claims to be mailing out new cards and has the person's name, but they need you to verify the information.

So the caller suggests giving your bank's name, or the numbers on the bottom of your checks.

So far no one has fallen victim to this scam.

But the Sheriff's Office reminds you to never give out your personal information.
