Algoma police warn about fraud and scams

Of all the calls that the Algoma Police Department responds to on a daily basis, fraud and scam cases are the most prevalent.  According to, one in every ten American adults lost money in a phone scam in the past year.  Police Chief Randy Remiker says the scammers are getting bolder and more sophisticated. 


Chief Remiker adds that if the caller or solicitor is offering something that seems too good to be true, it probably is a scam.  He says never to give personal information over the phone to anyone claiming to work for the federal government.  Any correspondence by government agencies would typically be sent by certified mail rather than over the phone, according to Remiker.
