The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office warns local business of an uptick in phone scams

RICHMOND, Co. (WJBF) – The Richmond County Sheriff’s Office would like to warn local businesses of an uptick in phone scams.

Investigators say businesses that are open late or overnight are the ones being targeted.

They say it’s because the scammers can make their claims when managers and administrators aren’t in the office to confirm the details.

The sheriff’s office says thousands of dollars have already been lost through these phone scams.
