Beware of the scam, they're out there

Diana Little of Gastonia received a call on Tuesday from a man who said her son, Erin Potter, 37, of Gastonia, needed to get an attorney and call back right away. The man on the phone even gave Little a case number for Potter to use when he returned the call. Potter says his mother believed everything was legitimate and passed along the message. “I called and through a recorded answering you had two or three choices. This lady picked up and answered,” Potter said. “I have the case number that was associated with me. She said, ‘It looks like you’re being sued by a bank for a sum of like $9,000 plus.’”
