Cabarrus Senior Center name used in phone scam
Do not give personal information over the phone
CONCORD – Cabarrus County officials say a scammer has been calling households claiming to represent the Cabarrus County Senior Centers and asking the seniors to put money into accounts at the Senior Center.
The caller is not a representative of the Senior Centers or Cabarrus County.
Representatives from the Senior Center will never call and ask for personal banking information over the phone, Cabarrus officials say. Customers must initiate all monetary transactions with the Senior Centers in person at either the Concord (331 Corban Ave. SE) or Mt. Pleasant (8615 Park Drive) locations.
Cabarrus County Sheriff Brad Riley said he was thankful citizens had made the county aware of the calls.
“It’s unfortunate that criminals are targeting our seniors by using the name of a trusted resource in our community,” Riley said. “These scams need to be reported properly to the local police, with as much available information provided as possible.”
Anyone who is contacted as part of the Senior Center scam should call the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office at 704-920-3000.
