03 - 31 - 2010 Granville Police warn of another telephone scam
Information has been received by Granville Twp. Police of a fraudulent company calling Mifflin Co. residents & requesting money to negotiate with credit card companies to reduce the interest rate on consumerâs accounts. These callers have been able to change the number on caller ID boxes to reflect a local Lewistown-based call, so residents will assume they are receiving a call from the local area. The callers seek to obtain either credit card numbers or money & police urge citizens not to give out information to these types of calls over the phone.
