Beware Phone Scams

BEWARE – TELEPHONE SCAMS We have experienced an increase in phone scams. These scams include the I.R.S. calling about past due taxes, a local police agency calling about an outstanding warrant, someone claiming to be your friend or a report of a loved one in a Mexican jail, you won the lottery, or other similar type of calls. These people will use fake names, fake businesses, and they will even alter the caller ID to make it look like they are calling from the business they are claiming to be with. These types of calls are SCAMS. If you believe you have been a victim of this type of crime, call your local police agency's non-emergency number to report the incident.
