Limestone County officials warn of scam targeting seniors

ATHENS, Ala. (WHNT) – A new scam circulating in County Limestone is targeting senior citizens.

According to the Limestone County Council on Aging, officials have been made aware of the scam that asks them to respond to an investigation for the Limestone County Commission or senior centers.

The caller insists he is from TARCOG, or the Top of Alabama Regional Council of Governments.

The Aging Council wrote on social media that it had verified that no one from TARCOG made the calls, and neither the commission nor the Aging Council authorized the calls.

“Never forget that you should never give personal information over the phone to anyone you don’t know,” the organization said.

If you have received a call like this or know someone who has received a similar call, contact the Limestone County Council on Aging at 256-233-6412.
