Once again we have been fielding complaints of phone and email scams of subjects claiming to be with the IRS stating the homeowner owes money and if they don't pay they could be arrested. These calls and emails are scams and we have attached a link for more information on these scams. We ask that you address these calls and emails as what they are and that is a scam and don 't reply or give any information. Please warn the seniors in your family about these calls as well.
Perkins Police are aware of a phishing scam where calls are made to residents from someone claiming to be from area financial institutions, including Vacationland Federal Credit Union.
If you receive a call from anyone claiming that your debit, credit, or account information has been compromised, cancelled, blocked, etc.,
DO NOT give out any financial or personal information.
Instead, hang up and call your financial institution or Perkins Police at 419-627-0824.
Potential Fraud Alert:
Perkins Township Police would like everyone to be aware of an ongoing scam in our area. Residents and businesses are being contacted by persons representing themselves as their electric utility provider. The caller informs the resident that their electric bill is overdue and that their electricity is going to be shut off immediately if a payment is not made. The caller instructs the resident to purchase a Green Dot money card to make an instant payment.
If you receive a call similar to this one, please do not follow through with their request. If you ever have reason to question a call such as this, either contact your local police, or, contact the utility company directly.
Here is a link to First Energy's web site that details this scam and also provides a link to Green Dot to request a refund if you have been a victim of this scam.
