State Police Warning of New Scam
Broadcasted ON the Morning NEWS
State Police from Salem Oregon informed the media of the newest scam attempt. Automated voice calling your home stating that you have an overdue ticket that is due immediately. Then it offers you the option to make a payment over the phone. More like it insists that you make it by phone. Had a gentleman in Portland, Oregon not been sharp on his toes and notified the police, they would have gotten away with getting nearly 400.00 dollars from this man.
So beware of the automated voice calling to state that the they are from the state police.
