Starkville Police warn people about recent phone scam

STARKVILLE, Miss. (WCBI) – The Starkville Police Department sounded the alarm about a phone scam making the rounds.

SPD said while law enforcement or the courts may call you about a warrant, they will never ask for payment over the phone or with a prepaid card.

Be reminded that you should never provide personal information over the phone if you can not verify the legitimacy of the caller.
