We have been receiving several calls from area residents complaining of phone calls of people claiming to be insurance sales, telemarketers and other business related issues attempting to obtain personal information from the person being called. Several residents responded they were not interested or called them out on being a scam and the callers were very rude, insulting, and profane while some have repeatedly called solely to harass our citizens after being told “No”. The best advice is to only do business with those you know.
