A warning from LC Sheriff’s Office
Several people in Lincoln County, including employees at the Lincoln County Courthouse, have reported receiving unsolicited phone calls from the TLC Credit Union stating that their TLC debit card has been de-activated and solicit information via touch tone to correct the issue.
The TLC Credit Union was contacted and reported that the phone calls are not from them – they are machine generated scam calls being made to random phone numbers in the area. The scam has been reported to the Department of Justice.
If you receive this, or any, phone call or e-mail requesting personal or financial information do not provide any information. Businesses do not operate in this fashion. If you are contacted by a business requesting contact, never reply with the contact information provided by the solicitation. Locate the contact information of the business through trusted sources of information.
