LAGRANGE - The LaGrange County Sheriff’s Department is alerting area residents to a telephone scam.

Some residents received phone calls which caller I-D showed as from Hawk Bail Bonds. However the caller said their name was Rachel and offers to lower their credit card interest rates.

Authorities say the scam points out you can’t trust information from caller-ID as the display number can be someone you are familiar with or trust but can be faked.

You should never give out personal information on the phone and when you hear an offer like that, don’t press any buttons when prompted. Doing so can cause you to receive more annoying calls in the future.

Allow calls to go through to go to voicemail if possible and only pick up if you recognize the voice.
