Phone scams

Shippensburg Borough Police have received a lot of complaints of phone scams lately. The IRS will not contact you by way of telephone and tell you there is a warrant, SCAM. It will be an official letter if there is a problem.  There is a group claiming that you have won a thousand dollars. All you have to do is send them processing fees, SCAM.  Another group is claiming that your family member is in trouble and they need your money to get out of jail, SCAM. Never give out your banking or personal information to anyone over the phone. And please don't think you can out smart them, they will not stop until they get your money. These are professional thieves. These people have made it really hard to trace and locate thanks to the internet.
