The St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Department is urging residents to be aware of an apparent scam that is making the rounds.

According to police, people are being called and told that they are owed money either from being a Walmart patron or from overpaying an electric bill. The caller may state that you are owed a sizable amount of money and may inquire into personal financial information.

The Sheriff’s Department says these calls should be treated as a scam and are not legit.
