Wayne County Sheriff Tim Catron has issued information to local residents regarding another scam that is directed toward AT&T cell phone customers.

    According to Catron, scammers called AT&T customers with knowledge 
of how many cell phones they have with the company. They claim that 
they will be sending the customers a check for an upcoming service 
outage.
    Scammers then ask the customer for AT&T account information, while 
trying to lead the individual into giving them their personal banking 
account or credit information.
    Catron said that representatives of AT&T have confirmed that they 
are not making these types of calls to customers.
    Anyone with information should contact the Wayne County Sheriff's Office at (606) 348-5416.
