POLICE-SCAM WARNING
Kentucky State troopers warn of possible phone scam offering money for medical problems

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, April 8, 2014 4:08 AM EDT
SEBREE, Ky.


Kentucky State Police troopers are warning of a possible scam involving a caller offering money because of a medical problem.

Trooper Stu Recke says person contacted troopers in Madisonville after getting a call from Louisiana over the weekend. Recke says a male caller stated that they were going to send the potential victim money from a pharmaceutical company because of faulty mesh from a surgery many years ago.

When the potential victim advised that they had not had surgery, Recke says, the caller stated that it was due to taking anti-depressant drugs related to pregnancy.

After being questioned about the source of their information, the caller from Louisiana responded it came from the Kentucky Department of Health.

Recke says there's been only one report of the call in western Kentucky.
