Back in October we told you about a phone scam that had cost several Bay County residents a lot of money. Now two months later, the scam is still operating and this time residents of Holmes County are the victims.
The scam begins with a collect call from a prison in south Florida. The inmate asks you to call his loved one using a special long distance feature, *72 plus the area code and phone number.
The inmate says the feature will ensure the victim is not charged, but dialing *72 actually allows the inmate to make long distance phone calls with the charges placed on your phone bill.
