Member Alert: Beware of Scam Targeting Local Dentists



The Augusta Dental Society recently made GDA staff aware of a scam targeting local dentists. A man is calling dental practices and posing as a US Marshal named David Lyons. He has a very convincing story that you have missed a federal court appearance and that he has a certified letter that has your signature on it.
 
The story is convincing enough that there have been 4 dentists and even more physicians at the federal courthouse today as a result. David Lyons is a real US Marshal based out of Savannah, but this is someone posing as David Lyons. The Marshal's office has already called the FBI to begin investigating. 
 
Should you be contacted by this person, please call Deputy US Marshal Charles Brant at 706-724-5040.
