KSP Warns Of Possible Scam

Date of News Release: 04/07/2014

Sebree, KY (Webster County) – The Kentucky State Police is advising the public of a possible scam.

Over the weekend, KSP Post 2 Madisonville was contacted by a concerned citizen in reference to a possible scam. The concerned citizen advised that they received a call from Louisiana. A male caller stated that they were going to send the potential victim money from a pharmaceutical company because of faulty mesh from a surgery many years ago. When the potential victim advised that they had not had surgery, the caller stated that it was due to taking anti-depressant drugs related to pregnancy. When questioned where the caller received their information, the caller responded the Kentucky Department of Health. The potential victim responded to the caller that this was a possible scam and was going to contact law enforcement. The caller then hung up.

At the present time, this is the only report of this type of scam received by Post 2. The KSP advise to never give out personal information to anyone that you are not familiar with.
