Biloxi police warn of possible phone scam

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Biloxi police are warning of a possible phone scam taking place. Sgt. Jackie Rhodes says the department has received multiple calls about phone scams targeting the elderly.

Rhodes said the scammers tell the caller they have won money through a contest, and they need to send in a percentage of the money before hand to get the full prize.

Police want to remind you to never give out your personal information over the phone. If you feel like you are being scammed, call the police.
