Warning: Identity scam targets unsuspecting South County locals


Letter to the Editor

To the editor:

I just received a telephone call. My caller ID said “Lemay Fire Department.” I answered it even though I live in the Affton Fire Protection District.

Turns out it was one of those callers that say they want me to get a better rate on my credit card balance – which I do not have.

I called the telephone number left on my caller ID: 631-1526. That’s a fax phone number. What can be done about the ID scam?
