Phone Scam Hitting Mexico

Local authorities are investigating a new phone scam.

Mexico Public Safety officials say the caller claims to be from a Las Vegas based company called Global International. The scammer then tells victims that they won a car in a Reader’s Digest contest, and to claim the price, they must purchase a PayPal gift card and set up a “deposit account.”

MPSD Assistant Director Brice Mesko reminds you to never give out personal information to anyone you do not know.
