City of Abilene Warns Citizens of Scam

Post Date:01/20/2017 5:23 PM

The City of Abilene would like to warn citizens of a recent scam affecting the Abilene-Taylor County Public Health Department.  The scammers are contacting citizens all over the nation posing as an insurance company and attempting to acquire personal information while masking their telephone number with that of the health department. 

The ATCPHD has received numerous calls from concerned citizens all over the nation asking for the solicitation to stop and to be removed from the calling list.  

The City of Abilene would like to remind citizens that they would never contact you asking for personal information.  

Please be advised that the best defense against a scam of this nature is public awareness.  At any time, if you are contacted and prompted to provide personal information, the best practice is to never share your personal information over the phone.
