Duluth Police Warn Public About Recent Phone Scams
The Duluth Police posted a story on their Facebook page about an investigator who got a strange phone call which prompted him to discover the truth behind the mysterious number.
According to the post, "an investigator with the Duluth Police Department, received two calls since Friday on his personal cell phone from (612) 328-9565. If you answer the phone, you will hear a recording saying “Don’t hang up it’s your lucky day” and claiming to reduce your student loans. The recording prompts you to press “1” for more information. The investigator who does not have any student loans looked into the phone number and similar scams were associated with this number last year."
Scams like this happen all the time, so never give out any personal information to anyone calling from an unknown number.
