Identity theft is a problem that won’t be going away anytime soon as phone scammers continue to develop more advanced ways to steal your personal information. One of the most recent scams to hit the area is being coined the “can you hear me” scam and according to Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski, all it takes is one word.
Citizens are reminded to never give out any personal or financial information over the phone. If you receive a suspicious phone call you are urged to contact your local law enforcement office immediately.
