We’ve been contacted by a citizen who advised that he was called and told that he needed to purchase $200 worth of iTunes gift cards and would receive $9,000.00 in exchange. Does this sound too good to be true? That's because it is.... There are many scams where iTunes gift cards are asked to be purchased to pay for things like back taxes or to transfer money to another person online. The problem is that iTunes cards cannot be used for these purposes but are only for the purchase of goods and services on the iTunes Store and App Store. Just like other scams involving Amazon gift cards, PayPal or MoneyPak, the scammers ask you to buy a card and then give them the security code. For an iTunes card, this is a 16 character code on the card and once the scammer has the code, the money can be taken at any time and then it’s too late. Do NOT return voicemails left concerning this scam or another similar one where the caller is told they are being sued and need to pay money to have the suit dropped. Should you receive a request for payment using iTunes Gift Cards outside of iTunes and the App Store, you can report it at

The Plainfield Police Department would like to remind parents of a few safety tips to observe during this year’s Halloween Trick-or-Treat times which will be Tuesday, October 31st between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Please make sure you do your part in making Halloween safe for the children this year. If you are driving, make sure you do so cautiously by driving below the posted speed limit while in town during trick or treat hours. AVOID TALKING ON THE CELL PHONE OR OTHER DISTRACTING ACTIVITIES! Also, drive with your headlights on even during the daylight trick or treat hours so your vehicle is more visible to children. 1. Keep costumes shortened to prevent trips and falls. 2. Try make-up instead of a mask. Masks often obstruct a child's vision, which makes tasks like crossing the street and going up and down stairs dangerous. 3. Make sure children wear light colors or put reflective tape on their costumes. Trick or Treating 4. Make sure older children trick-or-treat with friends. Together, map out a safe route so parents know where they will be. 5. Instruct children to stop only at familiar homes where the outside lights are on. 6. Encourage children to trick-or-treat while it's still light out. If children are out after dark, make sure they have flashlights and travel on well lighted streets. 7. Watch that younger children don’t dart out into traffic without thinking because they get excited. 8. Remind children not to enter the homes or cars of strangers. 9. Remind children not to eat any of their treats until they get home and to check out all treats at home in a well-lighted place. 10. Only eat unopened candies and other treats that are in original wrappers. Remember to inspect fruits for anything suspicious. We hope everyone has a very safe and Happy Halloween!!
