AG's Office Goes Against Phone Scammers



A slow period for the AG’s office as we wait on our new governor to be voted in, though Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt did note on an area him and his office are working very hard to control. Eliminating the multiple calls a day you receive that lead to scammers. Schmidt says it has to start with the phone companies as these crimes and calls are very difficult to enforce. Schmidt says that this issue needs to be dealt with the phone companies as well, as for his office they are very difficult to handle. If we eliminate those calls from ever coming in, it takes away the potential of getting scammed. Schmidt ask everyone to pay extra attention to those calls, even if it comes from a local number. He says if they ask for your name or any personal information its most likely a scam. Some scammers will pose as government officials, business owners and even family members.
