Officials with Kentucky State Police are warning the public of a newly-reported scam.
According to KSP, an instance of the scam was recently reported by a citizen of Muhlenberg County.
KSP says the citizen received a call from someone claiming the citizen had hit their vehicle and left his name and number on the windshield. The caller then stated he had been searching for the citizen, wanting cash payment sent to him for damages.
According to KSP, these claims were false, and the citizen who received the call wisely hung up.
KSP is reminding everyone to never share sensitive information with an unknown source either online or by phone. Additionally, legitimate businesses will never ask you to pay with Apple cards, eBay cards, Google Play cards, or any other prepaid card.
