The Ogdensburg police are reminding people that suspicious telephone, email or mail activity should be verified through the police department. People should never give out any personal information, including their date of birth, social security number, banking account information and credit card information. Caution should be taken when unknown people ask for money or money orders through the postal service as a way to redeem prizes.
A winning prize should never require a person to pay. Any questions regarding scams should be brought to the police.
