Many scam artists are financially affecting our residents. Don't be a victim.
- Remember, no business will ever ask you for payment in gift cards, including the IRS, courts, police/sheriff departments, utility services, etc. Have you paid a bill in the past using gift cards?
- Don't fall for the fear factor "time is of the essence" statements.
- If you did not enter a contest, you did not win.
- If you are being asked to pay for a prize (including "processing fees"), you didn't win.
- Don't fall for the calls about "your social security card has been compromised." You'll know before anyone else.
- Never give away your hard-earned money to someone you don't know, unless you have initiated the purchase.
- If in doubt about any situation, contact your crime prevention officer.
