Email Scams Being Sent to Knoxville Businesses

Knoxville Police Chief Dan Losada wants to remind residents that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Losada tells KNIA/KRLS news that businesses in the area have notified his department that they’ve received Nigerian email scams recently. He says these scams work in a variety of ways by either asking for the recipients banking information in order to smuggle money into the U.S., tell them they have won a prize and all they need to do is send the money for taxes or ask for money to help bail a child out of a foreign jail. Losada says residents should always be hesitant to share personal information with a stranger and be aware that these types of messages are typically scams.
