DON'T BE A VICTIM PUBLIC SERVICE MESSAGE

Please realize that some people in the country and across the globe make a living taking advantage of others.  Over the past several days, our residents were targetted by some of these individuals that claimed to be from government agencies or other "official" sounding people demanding money.  These individuals "cold call" people and sound very convincing and pressure others to send in payments or ask for personal information.  DON'T DO IT!  Any agency that is legitimate is well aware of the potential fraud abuse and may be contacted directly on their website or listed telephone number.

Be suspicious of anyone asking for money or information that you yourself have not contacted or are expecting a call from.  As always, call the Lower Southampton Police at 215.357.1234 if you have any questions about telephone scams or people showing up at your front door soliciting.
