Community Bulletins

Burglary Warning

Burglary WarningBurglars will often use a con to gain entry to your home. The subject will knock on your door and when you answer attempt to play upon your sympathies. The subject will claim to be cold or hungry and in need of your help. When you let the person in and leave the person alone they will take items and leave.

Burglars have also been known to pose as utility employees in an attempt to gain entry to your home. They will claim they need to check your fuse panel or pipes. One subject will ask you to show him where your fuse panel or water meter is located. While you do this the other subjects will go through your house in an attempt to locate valuables that can be carried away. REMEMBER any legitimate utility employee will have a photo ID on his person. IF you are ever in doubt DO NOT let the person into your home and call the utility company they represent to verify their identity and need to be in your home.

Businesses Beware

Business Scams

Scams Aimed at Churches

According to the FTC, con artists are targeting African-American churches with so-called opportunity scams. Emphasizing a shared faith, culture, or concern for the community to win their trust, these scammers offer the opportunity to use equipment or services that supposedly won’t cost the church a thing. Their goal is to get access to your church’s bank account.

Get tips on how to avoid these scams

Mass Marketing Scams

Plenty of consumers have been fooled by mass marketing fraud schemes. Did you know that businesses are a target, too?

Cash Advance Scam

Be sure to check your receipts when leaving your favorite malls. Did the cashier add a cash advance to your purchase without your knowledge? This scam involves enterprising cashiers adding a small cash advance to your purchase then pocketing the extra money. The cash advance is usually small enough to go unnoticed ($20.00 on a $100.00 purchase). Prior to stepping out of line check your receipt to make sure it doesn't say "Cash Advance". If this happens to you immediately ask for a manager or supervisor. If you discover this occurred after you have left the store it will be very difficult to prove or prosecute. It is still very important to report that you were scammed to the stores management. Reporting it will help the store monitor these employees’ actions and help catch them in the act.
