Cadiz Police are warning of a scam attempted against a resident there in recent days.
A news release says a resident received a phone call from a recorded message claiming to be from Wal-Mart. The message said the resident had won a 1-thousand dollar gift card from the store and gave instructions to redeem it by calling another phone number.
The recording said the resident would have to pay a processing fee and the gift card would be mailed. Police say this is just another in an ongoing series of scams criminals are attempting to perpetrate over the phone and through text messages.
Residents should deal with stores in person and never follow instructions where they are asked to mail or wire a processing fee.
