A rural resident reported this morning that she has been received several recorded calls from a phone with an 816 area code and the last four digits of 7578. When this call is received there is a recorded message about a “Security Alert” and certain instructions are given.
We have tried to call this number back and there is no connection and we have not been able to determine this is a number to a legitimate business. Anyone receiving a similar call should be guarded as it quite possibly may be a scam. If you do not want to receive these calls you may block the number and call the Missouri Attorney General’s Office at 1-800-392-8222 to make a complaint.
Be Informed, Be Wise, and Do Not Be a Victim. Enjoy your weekend.
