Telephone scam warning issued

Valley authorities are warning you about a possible telephone scam.

The Dekalb County Sheriff's Department said someone is calling from area codes 809, 284, and 876.

The caller is telling residents someone has died, been arrested, or other information and advising them to call back for more details.

But the number is a pay-per-call number and residents are unaware of the charge until they get their phone bills.

Authorities urge you to contact your service provider if you feel you have been scammed.
