There has been an increase of SCAMS in the area.
People posing as IRS, BIA, or FBI to name a few. DO NOT fall for these SCAMS. These scams are asking individuals to purchase gift cards on the promise to put money into their accounts, fix a computer problem, social security issue, or to avoid incarceration. Others go as far as posing as a family member who is in jail and needing assistance with bail money.
The RTC and BFPD would like to remind you to please be cautious with unknown callers and emails requesting money or personal information.
