County Clerk’s Office warns of phone scam

Hays County Clerk Liz Gonzalez is warning residents not to be taken in by a new scam that has come to her attention.

“Several residents have reported that ‘Hays County Clerk’ pops up on their Caller ID and someone claiming to be in the County Clerk’s Office, or a collection agency connected with the Clerk’s Office, demands payment over the phone to settle a lawsuit or to pay a fine,” Gonzalez said. “We want to make sure people understand that the Clerk’s Office does not handle lawsuits – we only keep court records – nor do we ask for or accept payments over the phone.”

A popular burger chain is set to open its first San Marcos location on Saturday.

Freddy’s Frozen Custard and Steakburgers’ new store is located on the northbound Interstate 35 frontage just north of Highway 123.

Franchise owner James Oberg calls it a better-burger concept.

“The food is cooked to order; no heat lamps or warming drawers. We also focus on the dining experience and strive to provide genuine hospitality in a casual and friendly environment,” he said.
