INFORMATION REGARDING PHONE SCAMS

We have recently seen an increase in phone calls regarding phone scams. We just want to remind everyone of the following:

1. If someone calls claiming to be from the IRS, IT IS A SCAM! The IRS will never call you if you owe them money. They only communicate by certified or regular mail. If you get one of these calls, HANG UP immediately no matter what they tell you and block the number.

2.There is another scam that states your child / grandchild /sibling/ parent has been arrested and you need to pay bail money immediately......this is a scam also. They never give a name just a gender (i.e., grandson, daughter, nephew) Again, hang up and block the number.

3. If someone calls saying that you have money coming to you that you don’t have to pay back, this is also a scam. Do not give them your address, name or any other information.

As a rule of thumb, we encourage everyone to not answer their phone if it is a number you don’t recognize. If it is someone you know they will leave a message. However, sometimes scammers will leave a message......DELETE IT AND IGNORE IT. If you don’t return their call they will remove your number from their list and move on.

******PLEASE PASS THIS INFORMATION ON SO OTHER CAN BECOME AWARE.THANK YOU.

THANK YOU,
