Van Buren County deputies warn of Nigerian scam

BANGOR (WKZO) — Van Buren County Deputies say someone posing as an IRS Agent or a

representative of Publisher’s Clearing House is calling elderly residents in the Bangor area

and claiming they have money for them, and if they just turn over a check or cash a check

and mail back the extra or turn over your bank account numbers so they can deposit it, you

will get the cash.

It’s a scam. They believe the calls are coming from Nigeria where bilking elderly Americans

is apparently a major industry.

The Sheriff’s department says never give out your numbers to strangers, or other personal

information over the phone.
