Sheriff urges local residents to be cautious about scams

(Continued)

PALESTINE —

But Anderson County residents need not be duped.

If an unknown representative calls a residence trying to sell something that the recipient doesn't think they need, the FTC recommends the recipient simply say, "No thanks."

If a telemarketer continues to pressure, especially for personal information such as a credit card or Social Security number — as was the case with McNellis — then it’s likely a scam.

Hang up and report it to the FTC at www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov.
