Did you know that area residents have been defrauded of over $30,000 recently from online and telephone schemes? Reports of online and telephone fraud are on the rise, specifically among senior citizens. Scammers use clever schemes to defraud millions of people every year. They often combine new technology with old tricks to get people to send money or give out personal information.
“We are committed to helping people in our communities be savvy consumers,” said Alpine Communication’s general manager, Chris Hopp. “By collaborating with local law enforcement agencies, we want to stem the rise of fraud locally by educating our customers on the ways they can protect themselves from fraud.”
