Police report two phone scams

Police are warning the public about two phone scams currently being reported.

In the first scam, the callers offer loans with low interest rates, but require a down payment.

The second scam informs people they’ve won a large sum of money by using their credit card at common locations such as Wal-Mart, Target or CVS. The scammers identify themselves as lawyers or government agents and request a payment, either for taxes or entry fee, via Green Dot cards or Western Union.

The public is reminded to never provide any personal information, such as birth dates, Social Security numbers, bank account or credit card information to anyone.

If you think you are contacted by a scammer, call the Police Department’s nonemergency number at 935-3311
