Recently a number of residents have received SCAM phone messages that say the IRS is opening a claim for money that you owe or similar wording. Please do not give any personal information to the caller especially not Social Security or bank account information, credit card numbers or verify date of birth over the phone; or to people you do not know, that show up at your door. Never say yes, or your name, or give any identifying information on robocalls. Hang up stay silent or answer no, as voices are recorded and then information is used to hack accounts. Prepaid cards and Western Union are other avenues scammers use so just hang up if you get one of those calls.
We are in for a stretch of week or more of very cold cold weather as reported by the National weather service and local weather stations. Please try to stay inside if possible or dress warmly in layers if you need to go outside.
