Crossville Crime Stoppers Warns of Telephone Scam


Crossville Crime Stoppers Warns of Telephone Scam
Crossville CrimeStoppers Sunday April 12, 2015

Crossville Crime Stoppers warns area residents that scammers are targeting telephones as a source of information and revenue. Reports are being made in reference to the receipt of bogus debt collection / settlement phone calls from (626) 532-1278. The callers, one calling himself Brandon Allen, from "Corporate Office", claim to be calling from Cumberland County, but the number returns to a landline in El Monte, CA. The calls are designed to sound official and even have the callers claiming to be working with reputable banking institutions or with un-named law firms. They claim that an overdue account, that is thousands of dollars, can be settled for just $400 within the next two hours. They are even calling claiming to be attempting to serve papers and looking for more contact information. A check with the bank or the courts will quickly prove the information given to be false. The callers are reported as being "very rude and aggressive" and they are "swearing and shouting". They are requesting your banking information and debit card numbers to pay the requested amount. Don't fall for it! The Crossville Police Department says these calls are fake and you should hang up and block the number immediately! (Photo Courtesy Crossville Crimestoppers)

Benefits To Producers Losing Livestock to Natural Disasters: Submited-Denesa Jolley, County Executive Director Cumberland/Bledsoe County Farm Service Agency (FSA)
USDA Sunday April 12, 2015

With Spring storms upon us, the Farm Service Agency encourages livestock producers to contact the local office to learn more about the Livestock Indemnity Program. This program provides benefits to livestock producers for livestock deaths in excess of normal mortality caused by adverse weather. It also covers attacks by animals reintroduced into the wild by the federal government or protected by federal law, including wolves and avian predators. Since all livestock death, including normal mortality deaths, must be reported to the FSA office within 30 days of the date of death, all livestock producers are urged to drop by the office to pick up a Fact Sheet explaining program requirements. Those having questions may call 931-484-6520 or toll free at 855-216-2802. The office is located next door to the Crossville Post Office.
