Another scam is circulating our area where the caller states they are an investigator near international borders.

In this recent scam, people receive a phone call from someone who claims to be an investigator near Canadian or Mexican borders; the caller claims a car registered in your name was found with drugs, blood in it and accounts in your name have been connected with drug cartels. Their intent is to frighten you with these claims. These callers then ask you to verify your social security numbers and once you verify your number, begin asking questions about accounts, credit cards and 401Ks. 

Remember, do not converse with these callers or give them any of your personal information; hang up immediately. If you have any concerns, verify them with your local police department or Sioux County Sheriff’s Office.
