Guthrie is warning about a re-emerging phone scam once again being reported by residents.
In each case, fraudsters manipulate the Caller ID to make it appear as though it’s an official number being used.
Potential victims are told they’re due a refund from overpayment for services, then asked to provide credit card information to receive it.
REMINDER: Guthrie will never use automated calls to seek payment or making other account adjustments; only to remind patients of upcoming appointments.
If in doubt, hang up and call back to verify the call actually came from Guthrie.
Confirmed fraudulent calls should be reported to members of local law enforcement.
