Forest Receiving Scam Calls From What Look Like Local Phone Numbers

10/04/18 – 11:08 A.M.

The Forest Police Department says that they have reports of scam phone calls hitting the area with local numbers. The scam calls seem to be local to get people to pick up. If you do pick up, you will hear a recording saying that your Microsoft accounts or computer software are about to expire. It will then try to get you to speak to a live person.

The Forest Police Department urges you not to give any information to these callers. It is a scam to get private information.
