Telemarketing Scheme

It may not be illegal, but it is a waste of money. The sheriff says a caller is telling people they may be entitled to unclaimed money in state treasuries.

Then the caller agrees to research the case for a $25 fee.

The victims almost always find out that they're really not eligible for any state money.

The sheriff says information about unclaimed funds in state coffers is a matter of public record and it's available free of charge.

Sheriff Glover says most of the victims who have contacted his office to complain about the scheme are senior citizens.
