Possible scam making the rounds in Americus

AMERICUS, GA (WALB) - Police are warning citizens about a possible scam going around.

A lady called police and said someone called her from Data Check and told her they were trying to collect an outstanding debt.

Police say it's important to always check out of town area codes, and if you're unfamiliar with the number, never give money to them.

"Want to encourage all our citizens never to give out personal information over the phone--such as your PIN numbers, your social security numbers, your bank account numbers. Never wire money to anyone you're not familiar with," said Interim Chief Herman Lamar.

If you get a call like this, call the Americus police department.
