Beware of phone scams

Please be aware that phone scammers are using a spoofing technique: On the call display of the recipient, the calls appear as if they come from legitimate government agencies and police departments. The fraudsters often tell the potential victims that their social insurance numbers have been compromised or that they owe the government money.
