Pike County officials warn of phone scam

Posted: Updated:

PITTSFIELD, Ill. -- Pike County Sheriff's Department officials are warning of a telephone scam that is threatening arrest for alleged online ordering of medication.

Steph Reinhardt, public information officer for the Pike County Sheriff's Department, says not to answer or give out any information to the number 210-390-4139.

"If you have already given any of your account information, contact your credit card company or local bank," Reinhardt said. "If personal information was given, a credit check would be wise to see if anyone has applied for anything with the information you have given."

For any additional information pertaining to this scam, email sschacht@pikecountysd.org.
