Parsons, Ks - Phone scammers are back at work in the Parsons area. The Police Department recently received a report from a local citizen about receiving several voice mails and calls from a man with a very thick, middle-eastern accent, claiming that she owed money on a loan from Cashnet USA. The caller is very threatening and warns that they will send police to have you arrested and that a lawsuit has been filed against you and this is your final call. The man wants your credit card number or debit number to pay the debt. According to Community Resource Detective Sgt. Neil Springer, Cashnet USA was contacted and verified that there have been multiple complaints about a man with a middle-eastern accent calling and demanding payment for the company. Officials verified this is fraudulent activity and this man does not work for Cashnet USA. Springer said do not give out your information over the phone. If you have any questions, call the Police Department at 620-421-7060.
