The Vigo County Sheriff's Department is looking to curb scams in the Valley.
Seniors seem to be very trusting and are often the first to be taken advantage off.
Now there is a hotline number to call if you feel like you’ve been a victim
One nice thing about the hotline is that is not staffed by a computer or someone who couldn’t speak English.
If you think you have been scammed and want to report it call the hotline and leave a message and a deputy will call you back.
The scam hotline number is (812) 231-1430.
