Scam Warning

Corrine has uncovered a new scam being perpetrated on unsuspecting citizens.
Police officials are referring to this scam as 'The AFLAC Scam'.

She has the details here. Remember, knowledge is power!


Watch out for this scam.
Police are urging visitors to the City Center to be especially vigilant for a new gang operating a slick routine that is aimed at stealing from unwary persons. They say that the gang usually comprises four members, one adult and three cute little ones.

While the three younger ones, all appearing sweet and innocent, divert their "mark" with a show of friendliness and fun, the fourth---the eldest---sneaks in from behind the person's back to expertly rifle undetected through his or her pockets and bags for any valuables being carried. The below picture, taken by an alert passerby using a cell phone, shows the gang in operation.
