Threatening phone scam spans across NC counties

Law enforcement officers are warning the public about a scam hitting residents across two counties.

Officials said scammers are calling people and threatening to kill their loved ones if they don't give up the money.

Eyewitness News reporter Tina Terry talked to Rowan County deputies about one case.

There have been several of these cases reported in Rowan and Iredell counties.

Deputies started investigating one case Wednesday.

They said a couple in Cleveland contacted deputies saying they'd received a disturbing phone call on their cell phone.  

The caller told them he'd kidnapped their sister-in-law and intended to kill her if they didn’t wire more than $1,700.

The couple suspected something was wrong and called the Sheriff's Office.

They eventually learned their sister-in-law was never at risk and the caller was lying. 

This week Salisbury police, Cleveland police, and Iredell County deputies all received similar complaints. 

So far no one's fallen for the scam.

Deputies said you should not wire money if you receive a call like this and call police immediately.

Channel 9 will continue to gather information about this string of scams and bring you more at 6 p.m. on Eyewitness News.
