Aug 12, 2014

The District Eight State Police are warning residents of a phone scam. Law enforcement says someone is calling residents saying they are from ‘Southend Enterprises’ and have detected a virus on a home computer. The scammer then asks for money to fix the virus from a remote location. Police say the scammer is calling from a 210 area code. Residents who may have been victims of the scam should call the Illinois State Police.
