SCAM ALERT 01-16-2018 Eastern Adams Regional Police Department has received several complainants from residence of attempted phone scams. Unidentified person(s) are calling residents and informing them that they had won a contest and should call a given number to redeem their prize. WARNING: Do not attempt to call these numbers to redeem a prize for a contest that you have never entered. The phone numbers are usually foreign numbers where the unidentified person attempts to keep you on the phone to incur excessive phone charges, which they receive a portion of the charge. The unidentified person then instructs you to send in gift cards to receive your prize money. Remember, if someone wins prize money, you are never charged a fee for this.

THEFT FROM AUTO ALERT OXFORD TOWNSHIP Since January 7, 2018, Eastern Adams Regional Police Department has received five (5) reports from residents of theft from autos. The thefts occurred on Hampshire Drive, Heritage Court, Carley Drive, and 700 Road. All the thefts had the same circumstances. The vehicles were all parked unlocked on the residents’ property overnight. The vehicle was entered by an unidentified person(s). A small amount of money was taken in each incident except the theft from 700 Road, which a car battery was taken. No one in the area reported suspicious activity. Other valuables were left in the vehicle. These types of thefts point to either young juveniles or individuals who are addicted to drugs. Eastern Adams Regional advises all residents to lock their doors before leaving their vehicles unattended. Remember not to leave valuable in plain sight.

TIPS TO PREVENT CAR BREAK INS It’s one of the most infuriating things that can happen to a car owner – and it’s one of the most common forms of larceny in the U.S. The “smash-and-grab” car break-in. They don’t even steal your whole car, just the valuable items in it – which you then have to painstakingly replace while dealing with the arduous and costly car-repair process. While there’s no way to 100% deter these kinds of thieves, there are some common-sense steps you can take to make your vehicle a much less appealing target. Above all, thieves look for opportunities. Make them “work” for their pilfered prizes, and they’ll most likely just forget it and move on to an easier target. Out of sight, out of mind Smash-and-grab thieves typically aren’t criminal masterminds who craft clever schemes to swipe your stuff. Most are casual opportunists. They see something they like, so they break in and take it. So keep your valuables out of sight. Never leave these things lying out on your seats, dashboard or floor: • Phone • Purse or wallet • Laptop (or its bag) • A briefcase or backpack • Shopping bags • An MP3 player or other small electronics • CDs if you still use them • Cash – yes, even loose change/coins • Your keys – it actually happens! Make them “work” for it Thieves are also lazy. With car break-ins, they’re usually not looking for a huge payoff. What this type of thief wants is a quick thrill – or maybe a little extra revenue – for as little work as possible. By making your car a harder target for these people, you make it less desirable. So: Always lock your doors and roll up your windows when you park. Activate your security system if you have one. Consider window tinting (if permitted by local laws), since it makes casing your car more difficult. Don’t use the console or glove box as mobile lock boxes. These are obvious to thieves, too. Don’t hand them the keys Like we said, car smash-and-grabbers don’t normally take the vehicle itself. But these are criminals, after all. A key on the dash or in the ignition may motivate the more daring into outright auto theft. And remember that if you have a great hiding place for a key – say, in your wheel well or above the sun visor – a thief has also thought of it. So if you’re away from your car, keep your keys away from it too. Preferably with you. Make things disappear first While your trunk is better than the passenger compartment for shopping bags and laptops, an experienced thief will often stake out a parking lot and watch you transfer your things there. So before you even get to where you’ll be leaving your car unattended, move your valuables to the trunk or wherever they’re out of sight.. Be alert See suspicious activity? Trust your instincts and don't park there. And never confront anyone yourself. If you're concerned, report your suspicions to an attendant or the police.

IDENTITY THEFT BEWARE OF PHONY TURBO TAX EMAILS FOR THE UPCOMING TAX SEASON People are receiving fake emails purporting to be from TurboTax, and the company is warning people not to respond. They’re from scammers. Last year, and in previous years, criminals used Turbo-Tax to file returns ahead of legitimate taxpayers. In some cases, they simply opened another account in the victim’s name and were not caught by TurboTax. The result was an identity theft nightmare for the victims, whose refunds were delayed. The fake emails have the title “TurboTax not working for days now...” If you receive one, Intuit, the company that owns TurboTax, advises: • Do not open the attachment in the email. • Send a copy of the email to spoof@intuit.com. • Do not forward the email to anyone else. • Delete the email. On the Internet, “phishing” refers to criminal activity that attempts to fraudulently obtain sensitive information. Here’s what you can do to protect yourself from phishing: • If you suspect you have received a phishing email from Intuit, forward it immediately to spoof@intuit.com. The company will look into each reported instance. • Make sure you subscribe to an anti-virus software and keep it up to date. • Make sure you have updated your Web browser to one that includes anti-phishing security features, such as Internet Explorer 7 or Firefox version 3 or higher. • Keep up to date on the latest releases and patches for your operating systems and critical programs. These are frequently security-related. • Do not respond to emails asking for account, password, banking or credit-card information. • Do not open an attachment that claims to be a software update. The company will not send any software updates via email. • Do not respond to text messages or voice mails that ask you to call a number and enter your account number and PIN. • Make sure you have passwords on your computer and your payroll files.

ITS THE HOLIDAY SEASON LOOKOUT FOR CHARITY SCAMS Charity scams take advantage of people’s generosity and kindness by asking for donations to a fake charity or by impersonating a real charity. Charity scams involve scammers collecting money by pretending to be a real charity. The scammers can approach you in many different ways – on the street, at your home, over the phone, or on the internet. Emails and collection boxes may even be marked with the logos of genuine charities. Often the scammer will exploit a recent natural disaster or famine that has been in the news. Other scammers play on your emotions by pretending to be from charities that help children who are in it. Not only do these scams cost people money; they also divert much needed donations away from legitimate charities and causes. You can contact your local Better Business Bureau to see if they have any information about the organization that interest you. If the charity is genuine and you want to make a donation, get the charity’s contact details from the phone book or a trusted website. If you do not want to donate any money or you are happy with how much you may have donated to charities already, simply ignore the email or letter, hang up the phone, or say no to the person at your door. You do not have to give any money at all. Protect Yourself Remember: If you have any doubts at all about the person asking for money, do not give them any cash, credit card or bank account details. Caution: Never give out your personal credit card or online account details over the phone unless you made the call and the phone number came from a trusted source. Think: If in doubt, approach an aid organization directly to make a donation or offer support. Investigate: Search the Better Business Bureau to check that the charity that has approached you is genuine. Ask Yourself:How and to whom would I like to make a contribution?
