Watch out for the *72 scam

A scam has surfaced in Charlevoix County, involving scammers calling people and posing as a law enforcement official, a public safety officer, or hospital employee.

Scammers create a story about a loved one being sick or in trouble. They then offer you a phone number that will give you “on the scene” updates and all you have to do is dial *72. Police say don’t do it. It could cost you.  UpNorthLive
