FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MAY 9, 2018 SCAM ALERT The Havre Police Department has received information about a new scam and would like the community to be aware. The scam begins with receiving an official looking envelope requesting your services as a “mystery survey shopper” and contains a money order. The documents request you to cash the money order and use the money to purchase ITunes gift cards in $50 or $100 increments from local stores. The money order includes fraudulent funds for you to purchase the gift cards and apportions money for your “commission” leading you to believe you are being compensated for your services. The documents request you purchase the gift cards and complete a survey evaluating your shopping experience at local stores. They also request you scratch off the ITunes card and send them a picture of the code found on the activated card which grants them the funds allocated on the ITunes gift card. The money orders potentially pass initial screening but will not be processed as they are fraudulent potentially leaving you responsible.

City of Havre/County of Hill to utilize CodeRED Emergency Notification system: The Havre Area 911 Board has contracted with Emergency Communications Network to license its CodeRED high-speed notification solution. The CodeRED system provides city and county officials the ability to quickly deliver messages to targeted areas or the entire county. Havre Police Chief Gabe Matosich of the Havre Area 911 Board, cautioned that such systems are only as good as the telephone number database supporting them. "If your phone number is not in the database, you will not be called." One of the reasons the CodeRED system was selected is it gives individuals and businesses the ability to add their own phone numbers directly into the system's database; this is an extremely important feature. “No one should automatically assume his or her phone number is included,” Matosich said urging all individuals and businesses to log onto the City of Havre’s website, https://www.ci.havre.mt.us/police-department/ and follow the link at the bottom of the City of Havre Police Department webpage to the "CodeRED Community Notification Enrollment" page. Those without Internet access may call the Havre Police Department at 406-265-4361 to supply their information over the phone. Required information includes first and last name, street address (physical address, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip code, and primary phone number, additional phone numbers can be entered as well. All businesses should register, as well as all individuals who have unlisted phone numbers, who have changed their phone number or address within the past year, and those who use a cellular phone or VoIP phone as their primary number. Matosich explained, "CodeRED allows geographically based delivery, which means street addresses are required to ensure emergency notification calls are received by the proper individuals in a given situation. The system works for cell phones too, but we need to have an associated street address to provide relevant messages." Matosich stated, "CodeRED gives those who want to be included an easy and secure method for inputting information. The data collected will only be used for emergency notification purposes." Questions should be directed to the Havre Police Department at 406-265-4361, Chief Gabe Matosich or Assistant Chief Jason Barkus.
