Bossier Sheriff’s Office detectives would like to warn all Bossier residents, particularly the elderly, about becoming the next victim of a new scam.
Detectives say the call supposedly originated from other locations in the state with a (318) area code. The caller is pretending to be either Sergeant Keith or Deputy Scott with the Bossier Sheriff’s Office with a message stating there is a CONFIDENTIAL LEGAL MATTER that needs to be addressed. Do not respond! This is a SCAM!
Detectives urge residents not to fall victim to this scam by keeping all their personal information such as social security and bank accounts numbers safe and confidential.
If you feel you have fallen victim to this scam please call the Bossier Sheriff’s Office at (318) 965-3418 or (318) 965-2203.
