I want to make everyone aware there are multiple phone scams going on in the area.  Please do not fall victim to these scams.  Some of these scams include the caller posing as an IRS agent.  Another scammer will pose as a family member in some sort of distress such as they have been arrested, they are stranded at an airport or other reason.  Another scammer will call saying you have won some money but to collect the winnings, you will have to pay to collect.  The fact is there are so very many of these scams going on in the area.  Please hang up on these scammers.  Do not give them your business.  If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  Some of these scammers are quite rude and obscene.  Do not be frightened by them, just simply hang up.
