More Phone Fraud in Sweetwater County

Possible fraud and identity theft were reported in Green River by a resident that received a suspicious phone call at her home. The reporting person told Green River Police Officers that she received a phone call from a person claiming to be an attorney out of Illinois. She was told that she was being sued for payday loans that she had not taken care of. 

The caller then attempted to get money and information from the reporting person. She ended the call and no monetary loss was reported. The Green River Police Department advises residents against giving personal information over the phone, or sending money to anyone without checking into the validity of the organization or claim.
