I have been alerted from several sources that scams are escalating as they normally do during a time of crisis. These scams are usually done by door to door by individuals some carrying false ID’s to verify they are for real. There are also scams that come via email or texting. The purpose this notice is not for you to turn away everyone that comes to your front door, phone or computer with an offer but is for you to be on the alert. If you do respond to anyone with an offer ask for their ID, phone number of the company or agency they represent and tell them you will call that number to verify they are for real and then you will contact them back if you find it to be a legitimate product or service. If it isn’t tell them you will call the police with their description and make and model of their car if there is one.
SCAM 1 – They are taking the 2020 Census information for the government. If you let them in they attempt to rob you of anything that can get their hands on including toilet paper.
SCAM 2 – They offer you a cure for the coronavirus. This is usually done by email or phone call/text. There is net no cure for this virus.
SCAM 3 – There is an insurance scam I reported on earlier this week where a person comes to your house and ask for you insurance information and that they can get up a refund from your insurance company. The company name on the card is
California Recovery Group.
Again this is just a heads up for all of us in this vulnerable time. If you know of any other scam email me [email protected]
