Police officers in the City of Solon, Ohio said they actually received one of the scam emails. They said the biggest clue it was a scam was because they didn’t have an account.

But that doesn’t stop scammers from trying and for folks who do have an account, they should be aware what website they are being directed to. Consumers can hover over a link to see where it takes them.

It is important not to click on the link unless you can verify it is from the company.

Some other red flags on the image shared by the police department is they didn’t use the person’s proper name, "Centre" is spelled the British way, the number is "0800" instead of "1-800", and the question marks at the bottom.
