New phone scam has come to Sioux Falls


SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - Sioux Falls Police say no one has lost money but they’re receiving reports of a new phone fraud claiming to be associated with First Alert or Life Alert.

     Officer Sam Clemens says the callers are persistent and claim that an account has been established for the victim.

     Clemens says the scammer needs personal financial information to activate the account.  Once they get a victim's information they can take money from it.  He says it's a new twist to an old gimmick but it's definately in Sioux Falls and appears to be targeting older citizens

      Clemens says the scam includes a local number to help gain the victim’s confidence.
