New Phone Scam

A new phone scam is making the rounds in Macon County. The Macon County State’s Attorney’s Office and Macon County Sheriff Thomas Schneider say the call involves a person saying they are a Decatur Ambulance Service employee and they are on the scene of a crash involving a family member. The goal of the scam is to obtain credit card information or immediate payment for ambulance services. Residents who receive either call are advised to not provide any information, hang up, and call the Elder Fraud Hotline at (217) 615-7582.
