Warning about ongoing scams

Warning about ongoing scams

Crime Stoppers wants to remind you that you should never give personal information to persons who contact you by telephone or on the internet no matter how believable they seem to be. Local police officers take reports every week from victims who have been swindled by persons posing as bank officers, officials from the IRS, persons who offer to help correct computer problems, or one of the many other scams in the world today. If you give them even a small amount of information, these criminals can get direct access to your identity - and your money. Most of the criminals are from locations outside of the United States, yet the victims are right here in our community.
