Scam Alert Issued by Tullahoma Police

The Tullahoma Police Department has been made aware of several different “scams” being perpetrated against our citizens recently. Please remember that:

1. Government agencies will never ask for payment in the form of gift cards or prepaid credit cards.

2. Verify who you are speaking to, and don’t give personal information out over the phone to someone that you do not know.

3. Scammers have the ability to “spoof” legitimate phone numbers and make the Caller ID show up as a legitimate number.

4. If someone is offering something of great value to you for a minimum or minor upfront cost, it is a scam, and someone is trying to separate you from your hard-earned money.

Most scams originate from out of state and sometimes out of the country making the likely hood of recovering money and or prosecuting the scammer very unlikely. Be smart and be safe!
