Scammers ‘help' add consumers to Do Not Call Registry

Friday afternoon in the metro is cloudy and a little cooler, and I'm Howard Ballou with a look at some of the news stories you will see on WLBT.

Scammers stepped up their game by claiming to be with the Do Not Call Registry saying they will help remove  your number from the marketing lists. Don't fall for it.

Plus, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is encouraging Mississippi to seek approval for a partnership, after blocking the state's proposal for a state-run health insurance exchange.

And, the two right lanes of Interstate 55 northbound at County Line Rd are closed following a car collision this afternoon.

In sports, more news from national signing day.

Overcast and 56 degrees in the metro. Be sure to get your full First Alert Forecast.

Of course, you will see any breaking news first on WLBT and you can follow us on Facebook, Twitter and www.msnewsnow.com.
