Chief Haj’s tip of the week

Police Chief Kevin Haj reminds people to beware of scams:

1. People posing as relatives.

2. Lotteries from other countries. If Canadian postage is on a letter supposedly coming from a location in the United States, be careful.

3. Checks in the mail. No one will send a check for free. Don’t cash such a check unless it is clear who it is from and what it is for.
