Upshur County OEM Warning Residents About New Scam

Posted: Updated:



The Upshur County Office of Emergency Management is warning residents of a scam involving the use of its phone number.

OEM employees said that telemarketers are using its telephone number for sales calls regarding medical supplies.

The OEM said it does not sell, endorse or recommend any medical supply company.

The callers are using a technology call “spoofing,” which allows a caller ID to be manipulated.

Please take caution when giving out your personal information.
