Police warn of scams during the holiday season

National

As more scams make their way across the region this holiday season, police are reminding people of safety tips to avoid having your money or information stolen.

Police say you should avoid paying gift cards to anyone you don’t know.

You should also check in with friends and family if you get a suspicious phone call or email because scammers will often target people by faking a family emergency.

If you receive one of those calls, you should hang up and call police.
