Helpful Hints

Watch Out for Con Artists

  • Don’t fall for anything that sounds too good to be true, such as free vacations, sweepstakes prizes, cures for cancer and arthritis, a low-risk, high yield investment scheme.
  • Never give your credit card, social security number, or bank account numbers to anyone over the phone. It is ILLEGAL for telemarketers to ask for these numbers to verify a prize or gift.
  • Don’t let anyone rush you into signing anything, such as an insurance policy, sales agreement, or a contract. Read it carefully and have someone you trust also read it.
  • Beware of individuals claiming to represent companies, consumer organizations, or government agencies that offer to recover lost money from fraudulent telemarketers for a fee.
  • Get Involved in the Community

  • Report any and all crime or suspicious activities to the police IMMEDIATELY!
