Press Release - July 2014: Grant Parish Sheriff Warns of a Scam
In recent weeks, a number of Grant Parish residents have received telephone calls from callers identifying themselves as working for credit card companies or for debt relief agencies.  The number that may appear on your called ID system may show a local phone number and even a local person’s name to make it appear like the caller is on official business.   Oftentimes, these callers are calling to solicit personal and confidential information in order to steal the victim's identity.   Sheriff McCain warns people to be very careful when giving out any personal information over the telephone.
