Police warn Clinton and Franklin counties about phone scams

Posted: Updated:
SOUTH BURLINGTON, Vt. -

Police in Clinton and Franklin counties are warning about a couple phone scams. In one of the cases the victim is called and told they won a sweepstakes, but need to send money to claim the prize.

Another call claims the victim's relative is in jail and needs to be bailed out.

As a reminder police say be wary of people who:

  • Do not provide a legitimate address or phone number.
  • Demand immediate payment.
  • Act vague
  • Say that money has to be sent in to collect a prize;
  • Appear angry or impatient.
