We have been receiving calls, and individuals have been coming in to report telephone calls, emails and
social media contacts, with people asking for personal information, bank account information and needing to
send money to relatives, calls reporting fraudulent activity on an account or card or reporting accidents.
These phone calls are scams, if it seems suspicious DO NOT GIVE any information to the caller. Ask for
a call back phone number and call them back to see if it is who they are claiming to be or simply HANG UP.

If you donít recognize the phone number on the caller ID, donít answer it.  If it is a person who truly
needed to contact you, they will leave a message.

The IRS and the Federal Justice System do not contact people via telephone.

Always remember the key things regarding scams:
If you didn't enter, you didn't win
If you have to pay to receive your prize, you didnít win.
If you have a lawsuit or other legal issues pending you will get notification via certified mail or served to
you by an official, whether it is a law enforcement officer or a civil process server

If you feel you have been a victim of a scam, please follow the link below to the Office of Consumer
