Beware fraudulent callers claiming to represent the Natchitoches National Fish Hatchery

A-Hatchery Phone Scam

After reading an article in the Natchitoches Parish Journal regarding fraudulent solicitation phone calls from the Louisiana State Police, Natchitoches National Fish Hatchery Manager Grant Weber reached out to the NPJ. He recently received a call from a Natchitoches resident who’d gotten a robo call soliciting him for personal information. His caller ID showed “Natchitoches National Fish Hatchery” and “U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service” as the callers.

Weber stressed that citizens should never give unsolicited callers any personal information, and the Natchitoches National Fish Hatchery would never ask for any type of payment, monetary donation, or personal information over the phone. He also said they’re working on resolving this issue.
