Beware of Aggressive Telephone Scammers


A Knox resident has received several scam telephone calls from numbers with an 855 area code. She tells WKVI News one call claimed there was a problem with her computer that could be fixed remotely if she would prepay via debit. Other calls asked for information about bank accounts and provided other sorts of personal information.

The numbers from which the calls originated are 855-552-2508 and 855-481-0079. If you contact your telephone service provider they can block the number for you free of charge. As a rule, do not share any personal information with a caller you do not know, and do not give any financial information out over the telephone.
