Ripley County Sheriff Tom Grills concluded, “Citizens need to be reminded that scams are everywhere. Be very careful with your private information. Do not give anything out over the phone or to just anyone who shows up at your doorstep. Do some investigating and ask some questions to verify and make sure it is safe to give out that personal information. Don’t throw away your hard earned money.”
