Cell phone scam affecting SW GA

BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - The Decatur County Sheriffs Office is warning folks about a cell phone scam.

Investigators say the scammers pretend to be Alltel representatives and try to get personal information.

Even a sheriff's investigator got one of the calls. "Basically the person identified themselves as a representative of Alltel. They were very professional and they stated they were interested in expanding the coverage in this area," said Investigator Redell Walton.

Investigator Walton cautions folks to never give personal information to anyone who calls you on your cellular or home phone.
