Pacific Grove Residents Easy Marks For Fraudsters

People that can spend $8 for a jar of pickles or hundreds on rusty garden decor seem the most gullible for other scams, right?

Police said the callers may be using personal information from social media sites.

Police advise residents to never divulge personal information over the phone or send checks, money orders or valuable items to people or businesses you don’t know.

If the scam involves a relative, confirm with someone you know that what is being claimed is true.

You can report scams online to the National Consumers League Fraud Center at www.fraud.org, or call the local police department.
