Missourians are being warned to be on the alert for a new form of identity theft. It’s a voter registration phone scam. The scammers call Missourians, informing them that “corrections” are needed to voter registration rolls. The callers then offer to make the “corrections” over the phone, saying a bit of personal information such as a Social Security number is all that’s needed. Terri Durdoller with the Secretary of State’s Office says anyone receiving one of these calls should get in touch with authorities. Voters in five counties – Laclede, Taney, Boone, Cole, and Jackson – have been contacted by individuals trying to steal identities. No one from any government agency will call to request personal information to make any “corrections” to voter rolls.
