A local resident is reporting to WITZ News that a phone call coming from North Carolina is a scam – with the caller stating that you’ve won $5 million.
But, of course, you have to send money via a gift card just to get your “winnings.”
The phone numbers that the scam is coming from is “704-413-1280.”
Residents are urged just to hang up on the callers, or contact local law enforcement if you have been a victim of one of these scams.
WITZ News also received news that the IRS scam phone calls are still going on at this time as well. The IRS never demands payment over the phone, or threatens you with arrest if you don’t comply.
