Suspicious circumstances

A worker in the 700 block of Skokie Boulevard reported Oct. 9 that a customer received several emails requesting them to wire transfer funds for an invoice. The worker considered it a scam and did not conduct the transfer.

A resident in the 2200 block of Oak Avenue reported Oct. 10 that three men claiming to represent the IRS knocked on their door and stated that they did not file their taxes. The resident did not offer any information and considered it a scam.


A resident in the 3500 block of Prestwick Lane reported that they were locked out of their online bank account and were directed to contact technical support for assistance. The person who answered the call informed the resident to call another number to repair the issue. When they called that number, the resident was instructed to purchase two gift cards and then call back with the information, which they did. The resident considered it a scam after the caller requested they purchase more gift cards, and did not make the purchase.
