Not a taxi service
The Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office is looking into a report that a Summerville woman has been abusing EMS service. The woman has called EMS numerous times complaining of various ailments; EMS transports her to MUSC where upon arrival she refuses treatment and leaves the hospital. According to a DCSO incident report, she has told EMS workers several times that she was being transported in order to see her family.
She has called EMS some 60 times between July 2004 and March 2013, according to the report. The case is under investigation.
A Summerville man reported that he received a letter in the mail informing him that he won a mega lottery that was conducted in the United Kingdom. The letter was accompanied by a check for $3,990 from Pimerica Insurance Company. The letter further stated that the man should cash the check and send $1,995 to a claim agent named Lloyd Lewis.
The man called the insurance company, who told him the check was a counterfeit and recommended his reporting it to law enforcement.
