***SCAM ALERT*** A recent scam has been brought to our attention and we would like to pass it along to the public. The caller will identify them self as an Apple Support Employee. They will claim your "Icloud" has been hacked and will ask for your Apple ID. The caller will ask you to purchase an Itunes card from online or drive to the nearest CVS or Wal-Mart to purchase the Itunes card. This is not a new scam but with tax season upon us, scammers are much more prevalent. Please pass this information along to family and friends.
