SCAM ALERT! There is a scam being sent to citizens in the community and the Lawton Police Department wants to warn citizens to be on alert for it. DO NOT follow any of the instructions that are sent to you in the envelope. Here are some tips to use to avoid being the victim of a scam: -Do your research. Scammers like to use the names of well-known companies like Home Depot or Wal-Mart to gain your trust. -Never wire money to someone you don’t know. Wiring money is the same as sending cash – once you send it, you can’t get it back. -Never agree to deposit a check from someone you don’t know. If the check turns out to be fake, it will eventually bounce. And since you are responsible for any deposited checks to your account, you will owe the bank the money you withdrew. -Never give your personal or financial information out online. Guard your personal information. Refrain from entering your Social Security, bank account, or credit card numbers online or by phone to someone who gets in touch with you.
