Warren County Sheriff discusses scams with local seniors

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Warren County Sheriff Brett Hightower took some time Tuesday to teach some seniors about different kinds of common scams.

Multiple residents at the Bowling Green Towers asked questions and told stories about people trying to scam them online or over the phone and gave ideas of how to spot a scam.

Hightower said  scams during tax season are very common and warns not to give out any information over the phone unless you know for sure of who you are talking to.

He reminded folks that the sheriff’s office will never serve a warrant to you over the phone, instead will show up in person.

Hightower also said if there is any question about the validity of a call, feel free to call the Warren County Sheriff’s Office and ask.
