Columbia County Sheriff Warns of a New Scam

Columbia County Sheriff Mike Loe is warning residents about a new scam.
Magnolia -- Columbia County Sheriff Mike Loe is warning residents about a new scam.

Sheriff Loe says they've received word that scammers are calling claiming to be representatives from UPS needing your address to deliver your $5 million in winnings and a new Mercedes-Benz.

Loe believes the address is just the starting point of the scam, meant as a way to gain more information.

There is also a letter from “Liberty Financial Incorporated” with a check. Do not cash the check; it is not valid. We have also had reports of scammers requesting to connect to your computer for updating or maintenance. Please do not allow them to connect.

If you feel you’ve been a victim of a scam, please contact your local law enforcement office.
