From the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office
Scammers are working overtime in the New Year!
Do not fall victim! Stay alert!
Here’s what we know:
Two reports in Livingston Parish
Scammer identifies himself as an LPSO Lieutenant. (These folks are NOT associated with the Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office)
The FAKE Lieutenant tells his / her potential target that they have outstanding warrants!
The FAKE Lieutenant says he’ll ‘cancel’ those warrants IF you buy thousands of dollars in gift cards and give him / her the serial numbers of those gift cards. (THIS IS NOT TRUE!)
If you receive a call:
DO NOT GIVE OUT PERSONAL INFORMATION!
Rest assured that we will NEVER exchange gift cards for warrants cancellation - EVER!
Report any information to the LPSO at (225) 686-2241 x1
