Hi everyone. Last week, I did a story about a GV resident who lost $190,000 to scammers earlier this month. Here's a link to the story if you missed it. After the story came out, I heard back from a contact at the Arizona Attorney General's Office who told me scammers are starting to use COVID-19 to get information and money from their victims. With the vaccine rollout getting underway, a friendly reminder was to be aware of people calling you and wanting information.

If you're suspicious about someone calling you for information, hang up and call the Sheriff's Auxiliary Volunteers 351-6744 or go to their website at https://www.gvsav.org/scam-squad before giving an unknown person your personal information or money.
