On Thursday, August 16th, police received a complaint of suspicious circumstance. The complainant had received a call, supposedly from the United States, asking if they wanted to cancel a salon appointment. The person was asked for their name and number before the complaint became suspicious and ended the call. The incident was reported to the police. The concern is that if the person’s voice is recorded giving their name and phone number, it can be used in some way to defraud them. Police recommend not giving any information over the phone unless it is to someone you know, or are expecting.
