JP warns of scam calls

SCAM WARNING – Montague County Justice of the Peace Kevin Benton reported Tuesday afternoon there is allegedly a scam using the court’s name in phone calls trying to extract personal information. The JP said the callers tell the person they are trying to confirm a social security number or a driver’s license, or that they have papers to serve them and need that information. Benton said they do not do this and no one should provide their personal information in this fashion.
