Scammers have gotten so bold that they even tried to pull one over on a law enforcement officer.
Bryan Walker, an investigator with the Roane County Sheriff’s Office, received a call last week from someone purporting to be from his credit card company.
“I knew it was a scam, because I don’t even have the particular credit card they were asking me about,” Walker said.
The computerized voice said Walker’s account had been frozen because of fraud and asked him to punch in his credit card number to reactivate the account.
