Police would like to remind everyone to use caution when dealing with people who call offering deals which sound too good to be true. A local citizen reported receiving from what sounded like a call center and the caller offering a device that would reduce their electric bill up to 40%. The incident was referred to Fraudbusters who advised it was a scam. Often, the scam request is for a customer to forward $120 to $170 and wait for the device to be mailed. However, the customer never receives the device.
