The Pittsylvania County Sheriff's office has gotten calls from people about a telemarketing scam.
Scammers are calling people andusing the popular "Life Alert" commercials to get personal information.
They start off by saying a family member has signed them up for the serivce.
From there they try to get a social security number and date of birth and sometimes credit card information.
Again, this has been going on for the past several days.
