Security is a top priority for everyone but “scammers” seem to always found new ways to cause problems. Shelby County Sheriff Don Koonce says the newest trend is an attack on those who pay their bills online. Sheriff Koonce said “hackers” and “scammers” will try to confuse someone to make them think they owe money when in reality, they are all paid up.
Sheriff Koonce says a lot of times people get into bad habits, not on purpose, but out of a daily routine or they do things they've always done and never saw any bad consequences. This, says Koonce, is where the “scammers” will get someone without that person even knowing what happened.
