Scams Continue To Plague Central Illinois

Scams continue to be an issue as people try to convince others to give them money or personal information. The Christian County TRIAD program is warning people of several scams making their way around the local area that look to separate you from your money.
Rich Peters is the Director of the Christian County TRIAD program, and says one scam that has re-emerged in recent days is the so called grandparents scam.
Peters says you should call another family member if you doubt the validity of a call involving a family member.
Peters also warned locals of the re-emergence of the “Marshall Scam” where scammers will spoof the number of the US Marshall's Office, telling people they missed jury duty, and can get out of legal issues by paying over the phone.
