Greenwood Mayor Carolyn McAdams is warning residents not to fall prey to a scam in which a fake caller claims to be representing Suddenlink Communications.

On Thursday, the mayor received a call from a resident on Sgt. Charlie Cooley Avenue.

According to the mayor, the woman got a call from the number 305-687-0544 from a person who claimed to be a representative from Suddenlink. The representative informed the woman that she had to mail  a $180 check to a post office box in New Jersey to upgrade her cable box, or her service would be cut off in three days.

McAdams said she spoke with Suddenlink officials and was told that this is not true and that the call is a scam.
