County Issues Scam Alert

Scam Alert:

The Los Alamos County Social Services Division is reporting that they have received information that phone calls are being made to local residents using a Caller ID that displays as being the main phone number for the Social Services Office (662-8068).

The caller is offering a deal to lower the resident’s tax rates. Social Services staff are not involved in any solicitation of this kind.

In phone scams, the Caller is looking to gain personal and financial information. They may be making calls with a Caller ID that looks as if it is a local number, or even use local names and titles to try and appear to be legitimate.

Social Services staff would never make these kinds of calls to you … the Caller ID is not legitimate. Just hang up. Report suspicious calls such as these to the Los Alamos POlice Department.
