Crow Wing County sheriff sees increase in scam calls, emails
Residents encouraged to continue reporting suspicious phone calls
CROW WING COUNTY — Within the past few months the Crow Wing County Sheriff’s Office has seen a rise in the number of potential scam incidents being reported.
Individuals may try to contact residents through email, text messaging or phone calls in the attempt to take advantage of them.
Sheriff Scott Goddard reminds everyone to be mindful about providing any personal, financial or health information to any individual who is not willing to confirm who they are or who they represent during incoming phone calls.
Prior to providing any of your information, a good practice is to seek a callback number or email address on your own to confirm the legitimacy of the requesters.
Goddard asks that people continue to report these incidents to law enforcement and don’t hesitate to contact them for any additional questions.
