Sheriff Patrick Ray is issuing a warning to beware of a possible influx of summer scam artists in the area."I have had several phone calls within the last month about scams throughout the county,” Ray said. “Some of these scams consist of people calling and claiming to be credit card companies wanting to give the consumer a cheaper interest rate.“What they do is try to get personal information from the person who they've called. Those who have called me have said they have not provided the callers any kind of information.“In many cases the callers become hostile, if they don't get cooperation from the potential victim.
