Local woman out thousands after telephone fraud


“Any phone calls that anyone receives where they can’t absolutely verify who they’re talking to (shouldn’t be trusted). If you get any suspicious packages wanting you to sign up for something and saying you’ll receive free money or gifts, it’s not worth even getting into. They need to contact the post office or us, depending on how it’s delivered to them.

“I hate to say it, but if it’s not face-to-face, then try to avoid it.”
