Amarillo Police Warn About Recent Phone Loan Scam

-
AMARILLO -- APD White Collar Crimes investigators is reminding everyone to be wary when seeking a loan over the internet. 

Research the loan company through the Better Business Bureau and check the company's telephone number with an internet search to help decide if it is a company that you trust before providing any personal information, even a telephone number.  

In early May, a local resident inquired about a loan through several internet listed companies. That day, she received over three dozen telephone calls in response.  One call turned out to a variation of a common telephone fraud, the pay or go to jail type of scheme.  

No law enforcement agency collects fines or fees in this manner.
