Paris Police Warn of Phone Scam

Police Department Car_sliderParis Police have responded to a few calls for service in recent weeks where residents are receiving telephone calls from an area code number of 876.

The callers are advising that the recepients have won a lottery and the resident will have to send cash to claim their reward.

This area code is from Jamaica and Police are unable to investigate further.

Paris Police want to remind you that if you have not personally entered a lottery, then you are not likely to have won that lottery.

Be very careful about giving out personal information on the telephone and internet. By Googling the 876 area code, you will find numerous fraud/scam alerts posted for the Jamaican area code.
