Incidents of fraud or attempted scams take place everywhere. They are not limited to one age group or geographic area. The types of scams may change but the solutions remains the same-education and prevention. We have made a list of the four most common scams our residents and businesses have been falling victim of and produced a scam awareness card.
With the support of the local businesses, we've displayed these cards near the area where money is wired or the gift cards are sold. It;s our hope that a would be victim may see these cards before they send any money. These cards are also available at our front desk or you can download one here
Always be suspicious when getting an unsolicited call or message. Just delete it, hang up or do not answer an unrecognized call. You can always do some research on your own and call them back once you are satisfied that it is a legitimate call.
