Mitchell County Sheriff warns of 'kidnapping scam'

CAMILLA — The Mitchell County Sheriff’s office notified residents on its Facebook page of a “kidnapping scam” that has been reported at least twice since Sunday. According to the sheriff’s post, the scam typically begins with a phone call saying a family member is being held captive. The caller may allege your daughter has been kidnapped, and you’ll hear a female screaming in the background. Another variant of the fraud has a family member being held because he/she caused an auto accident, is injured and won’t be allowed to go to the hospital until damages are paid.
