Emporia Police: Latest version of phone scam involves alleged TV updates via satellite KVOE News file photo

Old scam, new twist.


The Emporia Police Department says it's getting calls about a phone scam, which is nothing new. The twist is the scammer asks how many TVs you have in your home before they tell you to turn all of them on so the TVs can be updated by a satellite connection. Once that process is allegedly done, they say you owe them money.

If you get such a call, do not give personal or financial information over the phone. Instead, hang up and call law enforcement.
