HOPKINS COUNTY, Ky. (6/28/13) – The Hopkins County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) has received numerous complaints from Hopkins County citizens in regard to automated phone calls advising them that someone has paid for a life alert system for them.
HCSO has been able to track the telephone numbers and has discovered that they are not registered to legitimate businesses. Officials have also attempted to call the telephone numbers and these numbers were found to be inactive.
HCSO would like to remind all citizens not to give out any personal information over the telephone and not to respond to solicitations such as these. As with all phone solicitations, do not ever give out personal information such as social security numbers, date of birth, or any type of bank account identifiers.
