11-26-15-Phone Scam Involving United Way Hits Randoloph County

A phone scam has hit Randolph County. Authorities say the scammer is calling residents claiming to be from the United Way. The caller claims they need to update the person’s personal information. United Way’s Executive Director says neither the Randolph County United Way or United Way Worldwide would never call a person and ask for that kind of information. Law enforcement is reminding residents to never give out personal information over the phone to anyone you do not know. If you receive a call from someone attempting to get personal information, contact your local police department to report it.
