Check out these important phone scam tips from The Jupiter Police Department.📞‼️Phone Scam Tips:

▪️Be wary of callers claiming that you’ve won a prize/lottery, saying you have a warrant for your arrest, saying a family member needs to be bailed out of jail, saying they are the IRS, Homeland Security, Sheriff, etc.

▪️Be cautious of caller ID. Scammers can change the phone number that shows up on your caller ID screen. This is called “spoofing.”

▪️Independently research business opportunities, charities, or travel packages, being offered by the caller.Call the police first and verify.

▪️Don’t give in to pressure to take immediate action, don't be afraid to hang up.

▪️Don’t provide your credit card number, bank account information, social security number, or other personal information to a caller.

▪️Don’t send money if a caller tells you to wire money, buy a gift card, or a prepaid debit card.

▪️Even if they know some of your personal information, it may still be a scam. Remember a lot of your information is pubic record and they may have done their own research.

▪️Anytime you question whether the call is legitimate or not call the police and ask questions first.

Check out these important phone scam tips from The Jupiter Police Department.

🚨Beware of scam alerts! #CrimeTipsSCAM ALERT: Yesterday, we responded to the home of an 84-year-old woman who advised that a man and woman knocked on her door and said they were Boynton Beach city workers. They walked into her home and said they were contracted by the City of Boynton Beach to “look at things.” The woman took the victim back on the porch and talked more about the contract with the city as the man walked around the home. The “city workers” were there for 5-10 minutes and then left. The woman then checked her bedroom and noticed that her dresser drawers were rummaged through, however, nothing was taken.
This is a scam. The City of Boynton Beach, Government DOES NOT contract with anyone who would need to enter your home.
The ONLY City of Boynton Beach employees who will come to and/or enter your home without an appointment are:
* Police Officers
*Firefighters/Fire Marshal
*Community Standards Inspector (may enter your home if you live in a rental property and it’s the annual life safety inspection).
If someone comes to your home and does not have a City of Boynton Beach photo ID card, business card and marked vehicle parked outside, they are not employed by the city. Do not let them into your home and call 911.
