Wyoming Highway Patrol Warns of Phone Scam
The Wyoming Highway Patrol is warning the public about a phone scam making the rounds.
Sgt. Jeremy Beck says scammers are calling people and telling them a relative has been in a crash and arrested for DUI and that the relative needs cash for bail and attorney fees.
Beck says the calls are being spoofed to look like they're coming from a legitimate law enforcement office in Dubois, other parts of Wyoming and surrounding states.
Beck says the patrol hasn't, and won't request any payment over the phone.
He urges anyone who receives a questionable call soliciting funds to contact their local law enforcement or government agency to verify it's legitimacy.
