Scams in Loudoun using new tactics

New tactics are being used in local scams, according to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s office.

The office has received reports of Loudoun residents who have received fraudulent texts claiming to be from the Loudoun Credit Union. These texts direct recipients to call an automated system that asks for their credit card number, expiration date and pin number, giving outside access to potential scammers.

The office has also received reports of a caller who claims to be a member of the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office and tells residents that there is a warrant for their arrest. The caller then states that if a supposed fine is paid immediately via money card, the warrant will go away.

Some of these calls have even been spoofed so as to appear from the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office on caller ID.

The Loudoun County Sheriff's Office advises residents who believe they have received such a fake call or believe they have been a victim of these or similar scams to call the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office at 703-777-1021.


I looked under the Entertainment listing figuring I would see Flannery’s latest defeat in HD but it’s being saved for a new heading called Bad Entertainment. Look at the supporting cast the Weintraubs, Miller, Neveraz and Barney to name a few but all losers and razzie award winners, yikes!

We thought we had a Flannery but it was Jar Jar Binks.

From the headline I thought this was a piece about Flannery and the defeated Sterling Deserves Better crowd!
