Scam calls on rise, reports Rock County Sheriff

Rock County Sheriff Evan Verbrugge reports that many automated calls and some calls with a live person claiming to be with Amazon have been reported.

The scam calls claim that high dollar items have been purchased on your Amazon account and that legal action will be taken if the debt is not settled immediately. It’s stressed that this is a scam; people should not give out personal information and ignore the calls and the callers’ claims to be legitimate.

Verbrugge adds that people should remember that if someone is calling you and asking for personal information, it’s more than likely a scam.
