Public Service Announcement/Scams!

  • 6 November 2019
Crime of the Week logo

 

Crime Stoppers would like to take a moment to talk about how you can stay safe from scammers! Scammers are very manipulative, persuasive and masters at gaining your trust, don’t become a victim!  Some helpful tips are; never provide any personal information about yourself to anyone that you do not know or trust.  If someone is asking you to pay for services using gift cards, that is most likely a scam!  Scammers will also contact you posing as technical support and tell you that your computer has a virus or needs new antivirus or spyware software when there are actually no issues with your computer!  Never allow anyone to remotely access your computer unless you are sure they are legitimate Technical Support.  The IRS/Social Security Administration will not attempt to collect a debt from you over the phone and they will not send local Law Enforcement to arrest you or issue a warrant.  Before hiring a contractor for any work on your home ask them for referrals and do your homework before hiring them or making any initial payments.  If someone asks you to send them money so they can send you a larger amount of money or avoid paying taxes that is a scam.  If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!  If you are unsure, run it by a trusted friend or family member and get a second opinion before sending money to someone you don’t know.  If you have information about crime, call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 788-8427.
