DEA Drug Take Back Day

The Mundy Township Police participated in the DEA National Drug Take Back Day which on April 27, 2013. 

In this program, the DEA and partner organizations set up sites in communities around the country where the public can bring unused, unwanted or expired prescription drugs for safe disposal, no questions asked and at no cost. This is an opportunity to empty out your medicine cabinet of drugs you don’t need any more or have expired, including prescription drugs that contain controlled substances and dispose of them in a legal, safe and environmentally friendly manner.   

The DEA sponsors Drug Take Back Days periodically, usually once in the spring and once in the fall each year.  Upcoming dates will be posted as the information becomes available.  Information is also available at www.dea.gov .

CREDIT CARD SECURITY NUMBER SCAM

Following is an example of a telephonic credit card scam.

Person calling says - 'This is (name), and I'm calling from the Security and Fraud Department at VISA. My Badge number is 12460, your card has been flagged for an unusual purchase pattern, and I'm calling to verify. This would be on your VISA card which was issued by (name of bank). Did you purchase an Anti-Telemarketing Device for $497.99 from a marketing company based in Arizona ?' When you say 'No', the caller continues with, 'Then we will be issuing a credit to your account. This is a company we have been watching and the charges range from $297 to $497, just under the $500 purchase pattern that flags most cards. Before your next statement, the credit will be sent to (gives you your address), is that correct?' You say 'yes'.

The caller then says, 'I need to verify you are in possession of your card'. He'll ask you to 'turn your card over and look for some numbers'. There are 7 numbers; the first 4 are part of your card number, the last 3 are the Security Numbers that verify you are the possessor of the card. These are the numbers you sometimes use to make Internet purchases to prove you have the card. The caller will ask you to read the last 3 numbers to him. After you tell the caller the 3 numbers, he'll say, 'That is correct, I just needed to verify that the card has not been lost or stolen, and that you still have your card. Do you have any other questions?'

For your security:

 

       1:  Do not give out any credit card information over the phone!

       2:  Legitimate credit card company representatives would not ask for the security code numbers on the back of the card …. They all-ready have them.

 

       3:  If there is a breach in the security of your card and the credit card company contacts you, they would only inquire as to the location and amount of a purchase.

Credit Card Scam

Be wary of those who come bearing gifts. The most recent credit card scam works like this:


A phone call from someone who says that he is from some outfit called: "Express Couriers" asking if someone was going to be home because there is a package, and the caller says that the delivery would arrive at your home in roughly an hour. And sure enough, about an hour later, a delivery man turns up with a beautiful basket of flowers and wine. What a surprise for you (especially if there is no special occasion or holiday), and no-one certainly expects anything like that! Intrigued you ask who the sender is. The deliveryman's reply was, he is only delivering the gift package, but allegedly a card is being sent separately; (the card never arrives). There is also an official looking ‘consignment’ note with the gift. He now goes on to explain that because the gift contains alcohol, there is a $3.50 ‘delivery charge’ as proof that he had actually delivered the package to an adult, and not just left it on the doorstep to just be stolen or taken by anyone. (Sounds logical, doesn’t it?) You offer to pay cash but he tells you that the company requires the payment to be by credit or debit card only, so that no ‘cash’ is exchanged and everything is properly accounted for. You take out your (or your husband’s) credit/debit card and the "delivery man" asks you to swipe the card on the small mobile card machine which has a small screen and keypad where you now enter the card's PIN and security number. A receipt is printed out and given to you.


Next week you will find that money has been charged/withdrawn from your credit/debit account at various ATM machines all over the country. It appears that the "mobile credit card machine" which the deliveryman carried now has all the info necessary to create a "dummy" card with all your card details, after you have swiped the card and entered the requested PIN and security number.

 

Always be cautious about giving out bank and other personal information.

 

BURGLARY ALERT

Residents are reminded to lock windows and doors and to keep garage doors closed if not in the immediate area.  If you have an alarm system, use it.  A common tactic of daytime burglars is to knock on the door to see if anyone is home.  If someone answers the door, they claim to be looking for a lost dog or other story.  Report suspicious activities to 911.
