BEATRICE – Beatrice area residents should be wary of a telephone scam local police are investigating.
The scam is a recording that appears to come from the number, 402-228-3330, promising debt relief if the person receiving the call enters information using the phone’s touch tone buttons.
Beatrice Police investigators say the scam uses spoofing software, allowing the suspect to make the caller ID display a name and number of someone in Beatrice….when it is not coming from a local resident.
Authorities say the name on the caller ID is someone associated with a local bank, which appears to make the call legitimate.
Anyone with questions or who gets the scam recording, should call Beatrice Police at 402-223-4080.
