CLAIBORNE PARISH, LA (KSLA) -

A Claiborne Parish man is wanted for allegedly defrauding people in St. Martin's and Iberia parishes, claiming that he will pay their bills for them.

Gregory Donnell Lewis, 27 or Libson, Louisiana, contacted his victims, saying that he was with SMILE Community Action Agency, and that he would pay their bills for a few months.

The rub was that the victims had to buy a Green Dot card from Walmart and give him their pin number, according to the St. Martin's Parish Sheriff's Office.

After a victim gave Lewis their pin, he would hang up the phone.

Investigators are cautioning that people should not give out any personal information to someone over the phone, including credit card numbers. They urge verification of someone's employment if they claim to work for a specific agency.

Call the SMPSO at 337-394-3071 if you have more information about Lewis's whereabouts.
