Area hit with scams
In the last few weeks Lincoln Parish residents have fallen victim to scams and also reported them to the Lincoln Parish Sheriff’s Office.
Sheriff Mike Stone said residents have fallen victim to Internet and phone scams as well as scams that have been sent through the mail.
“We get about two or three calls a week about potential scams,” Stone said. “People have had letters dropped off and emails sent to them wanting them to do something in order to receive their winnings or trying to collect money another way. In all cases these turn out to scams.”
