The Neligh Police Chief would like everyone to know "the phone scammers are at it again."
"This time around, calls are being received from people claiming to be with the Social Security Administration," Chief Mike Wright said.
Wright said he received a call today on his personal cell phone from (830)582-6727 with the caller ID showing the call coming from Nixon, TX.
"It was really strange that the guy on the other end immediately hung up on me when I identified myself," the police chief said.
Wright would like to remind the public that the Social Security Administration and the IRS will not call you.
"You have no rich uncle or other relative that just died in a foreign country," he said. "Your grandchild is not in jail, needing bond money, and DO NOT give any personal, bank or credit card information to a random caller. If your bank or credit card company is really calling you, they already have your account information. Do not go buy gift cards for any caller. Thank you for your time and don't fall for these low life's tricks."
