Alert: 6-29-2017

A resident called in to report that she has received several phone calls over the last few days that are a scam. The phone numbers all show up in the caller ID as a local Crafton phone number even to include one local business number. A voice recording speaks to you on the phone and it is for insurance relating to signing up for Obama-Care. The caller is using the local phone numbers as “spoof” phone numbers and these calls are not legit. Please do not provide information to anyone over the phone unless you are certain of who you are speaking with. If you have any concern that the caller is attempting to scam you hang up the phone and notify the police department immediately to assist you in determining whether or not the phone call is a scam or not. Please pass this information on to friends and family.
