Be Aware of Scam Artists and Ruse Burglars


Scam artists use different types of fraud techniques to try to trick people.
Scam victims may be contacted via the phone or email, or in person by a “door to door” solicitor or as a worker in your neighborhood. A ruse burglar will try to get you out of the house to look at a fence or something in your backyard, while his or her partners enter your home and take valuables and cash.

Contacted out of the blue? If you are contacted by a company, make sure you do all you can to verify the identity of the caller or visitor. Utility workers and Village employees should have official identification  and vehicles. If you’re not 100% convinced of the identity of the caller or visitor, contact the company from the number listed on your bill for verification.
