Police Chief Michael Konwinski and the River Grove Police Department would like to remind you to be on the alert for a number of recent telephone scams seeking to separate you from your hard earned money.
The police department has received several reports of various telephone scams being made to residents in River Grove, and recently victims have lost over $16,000.00. A large majority of scammers call from other countries, while some scammers call from other states. However, arresting a scammer is very rare because locating that person is virtually impossible. The chief of police wishes to remind everybody of the following:
In short, if somebody randomly offers to bestow any amount of cash on you, in exchange for anything from you…you are most likely about to be scammed. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. When in doubt, call the River Grove Police Department at (708) 453-2121 to verify anything that seems like a scam.
