Denison woman loses $6,500 in scam

Posted: Updated:

DENISON, Texas -- Denison police say a woman was recently scammed out of $6,500 after someone on the phone claimed to be a bail bondsman.

With so many different ways to be swindled, there are a few ways to make sure this doesn't happen to you.

"What people need to do is never give anything out -- any information, any money, anything -- to anybody that they're not 100 percent sure that they are who they say they are, and that they're legitimate," said Denison police Lt. Mike Eppler.

Police say it's best to guard your personal information. If you get paper statements with bank information or anything similar, shred that paperwork before throwing it away.
