You would think that with the holidays upon us, phone scammers would stop their Scrooge-like activites.  No such luck.

Residents in the area have contacted the Pettis County Health Center about scam phone calls regarding credit cards. The bogus phone calls have been using the Pettis County Health Center's phone number as the originating location.

The Pettis County Health Center is not making these phone calls nor has anything to do with anyone's credit card. If you receive one of these phone calls, do not give out any personal information and do not respond to the caller.

If you have a question regarding whether the telephone call is legitimate and is from the health center, contact them at 660-827-1130.
