Scam Alert

Beware of Scammers on the Phone and in Person

Scammers can target anyone and are very persuasive, displaying a sense of urgency during conversations. They will pose as Social Security workers, representatives from the Gas Company or Southern California Edison, or even the victim’s grandchildren. Beware of callers pretending to be family members, urgently asking for money, gift cards or personal information. Scammers have many different tactics, so don’t feel pressured into giving out information to people that you don’t know. Just hang up.

If you are ever in doubt about a caller, or someone at your door with a claim or question that seems suspicious, do not hesitate to call the Brea Police Department for assistance on their non-emergency line, 714-990-7911.
