Residents Warned of Telephone Scam

We’ve received word of a telephone scam targeting people in the WKVI listening area. Several local residents are receiving telephone calls from a number that says “not in use” on the caller ID. The number is (786) 358-6691 and is from Jamaica. The callers are asking for Medicare numbers and information. NEVER give this information or your Social Security, bank account or other sensitive data out over the telephone. If you receive such a telephone call, contact the authorities.
