South Carolina (WBTV) -
Whether it's a caller saying you've
won a prize, an inheritance or an email with an authentic-looking check, there
are scammers out there who want your money or identity.
"An elderly woman in Barnwell
recently received a call from a person claiming to be a representative of
Medicaid," said SLED Chief Mark Keel. "The caller then tried to get her
personal information saying that she would get a new Medicaid card. Thankfully,
the woman didn't provide any information. Sadly however, there are numerous
other examples throughout the country."
Keel said South Carolinians should
be wary of anyone calling, texting or emailing with an opportunity of money or
prizes. He said there are many tips available to resist scammers.
"Never give out your personal
information such as Social Security number, driver's license or any financial
information," he said. "Also, warn your family and friends."
Keel said tips to avoid scammers
are available from a number of reputable organizations and agencies including
the S.C. Department of Consumer Affairs at www.consumer.sc.gov,
and the Federal Bureau of Investigation at www.fbi.gov/scams-safety/fraud
