Another Local Phone Scam
There are some threats being made to some businesses in Saratoga County.
According to the story from WNYT, someone has been calling these businesses and claiming to be from National Grid Collections, and then threaten to turn their power off. The caller then claims that they must buy Greendot Prepaid Cards, forward the number and then in some cases, demand more than $1,000 dollars.
The Saratoga County Sheriff’s Department has received numerous complaints about these collection calls and are conductiong an investigation.
