Phone Scam Hits Too Close to Home – Sheriff warns local residents…Beware

Phone scams have become quite common, and they often prey on people’s generosity or fear. We recently received information from a local resident about a phone scam that almost cost him $7,000. According to one of our Newton County News readers, he received a phone call stating that his grandson (they used his full name) was in a car wreck while drinking and driving and needed bond money. The grandfather went to the bank immediately, withdrew the money and put it in the mail. Thankfully, with the help of others, he was able to retrieve his money before the mail went out.
