  1. I received a call from Lt. Jerry Nelson, phone number 706-767-6997. He said I had a bench warrant for missing jury duty. He provided an address that I lived at 6 years ago. He wanted me to take care of the problem over the phone or have the sheriffs department drive to AL to arrest me. I asked if it was a scam and the caller immediately hung up. I called the Sheriff’s department and I have no warrants and they have never heard of the name Jerry Nelson. Just want to make you aware. Thanks for all the work you do!

  2. Received a call (to my land line) from “Windows” stating my computer and its security had been compromised. Asked me to log in to computer and they would connect and “sweep” my computer to see if any of my personal info had been cloned.
    # on Caller ID was 15-875-4550 (area code was 15)

    1. Teresa,
