SCAMS, FRAUD ALERTS


SCAMS

The best action, HANG UP. If it sounds “too good to be true,” pass.
Don’t engage fraudsters. They are polished, practiced and very proficient.

AUTO THEFT
Hide your keys rather than hang them by the garage entrance door.
Park your car inside the garage rather than in the driveway.

AUTO SECURITY and SAFETY
Glance into the back of your car before getting in to confirm it is empty.
Warm your car up by driving in it, not letting it run independently.
Lock your care whenever you park it, even in the driveway.
