Please be aware of scams. The Police Department recently received a report of a resident getting a call from her “grandson” saying he was in an accident and needed bail money. The resident was instructed to go to Western Union and send nearly $1,000 to someone in the Dominican Republic. Do some basic investigating of your own. Call your grandson, call his parents and verify. Do a search on the computer for scams. Call Police and tell them of the scenario. Please don’t fall victim to a scam. Be aware.
