BOYD COUNTY, KY (WOWK)—The Boyd County Sheriff received a call on Tuesday evening from a concerned citizen complaining about a potential scam call.
The citizen said the caller knew his name and identified himself as a lawyer. He went on to tell the resident that he saw that he had won the lottery and was also getting a stimulus check from the government. The caller then asked about the resident’s stimulus check, prompting the resident to hang up.
If anyone receives a phone call during which they are asked about their income tax or stimulus check, they are encouraged to give the caller the Boyd County Sheriff’s Office’s number.
