HAZARD, Ky. (WTVQ) – Hazard Police are warning of a phone scam that is going around the area.
Investigators say a man identifying himself as Dan Jones is telling people a family member is in a Florida jail and needs money in order to be released.
Police say the man then instructs them to go to a Walmart and buy prepaid debit cards and send him the information on the cards.
Don’t fall for it. It is a scam.
No legitimate jail or law enforcement agency would ask for a bond or bail payment in this form.
