Posted: Updated:

SAYRE, P.A. (WENY) - Guthrie is warning of a caller ID scam.

Officials at Guthrie say community residents have received fraudulent phone calls that display the Guthrie switchboard number on caller ID. The caller reportedly identifies themselves as a staff member of a provider's office calling to update their records and asking for personal information.

Guthrie officials want the public to know they do not initiate phone calls requesting personal information, such as social security number or credit card information. Residents who receive such calls are asked to contact local law enforcement agencies.
