BEWARE OF PHONE SCAMS – Chesaning Police Chief Stacey Wilburn warns that there have been many reports of phone scams lately. “Do not give out any personal information,” she said. Some scams have demanded payment over the phone for an unpaid debt; threatening that FBI personnel were on their way with an arrest warrant if they didn’t pay by phone immediately. “That’s not the process. Just hang up on them. If you’re worried, call us,” Chief Wilburn said. In another case, a scam artist contacted a local business claiming to be a Chesaning police detective investigating an embezzlement. They requested the business owner give credit card information. Fortunately, the business owner was sharp enough to know better. Don’t give out personal information. If concerned, contact the local police department.
