scam alert

MARSHALL COUNTY, KY — The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office is warning people of a possible scam.

The office says someone is calling people and identifying themselves as a reporter for the Marshall County Tribune-Courier.

The person who calls is not always a reporter for the Tribune.

If you are called by a person who states they are from the Tribune, you are asked to hang up and call 270-527-3162.

You should speak with Venita Fritz who should be able to verify whether the reporter works at the paper.
