Beware of ongoing scams

Residents in Seneca County are being bombarded with bogus emails, phone calls and letters using a variety of scams.

Elderly residents are receiving phone calls from young sounding subjects portraying themselves as a grandchild who has been arrested and needs money to get out of jail.  Other residents are receiving calls that their utility bills are overdue and are asked to purchase "green dot" cards and send them to the scammer and their utilities won't be shut off.

Residents are receiving letters and emails originating from outside of the United States advising them they had won a large sum of money, or, they were just discovered as a beneficiary to a large life insurance settlement.

"Each and every day, Seneca County residents are being targeted with a wide variety of scams intended to swindle money from honest, hard working people in Seneca County" , said Undersheriff Gary S. Sullivan. "Never give personal information out over the phone or internet, and by all means don't fall victim to these scams.  If you are in doubt, call 911 and request a police officer to respond who can assess the validity of these countless bogus scams", said Sullivan

Halloween Safety for Families

Seneca County Sheriff Jack Stenberg reports that every year, over 150 million Americans participate in Halloween festivities.  Of these, 41 million children age 5 to 14 will go trick-or-treating.  However, the quest for candy isn't all fun and games.  According to the Nation Highway Traffic Administration, more than twice as many children are injured in pedestrian accidents on Halloween than other days throughout the year.  In addition to learning about pedestrian safety, Hallowee is a great chance to talk to your children about food safety; fire safety, and Situational awareness.

Control the candy -  Feed your children a light meal or snack before going trick-or-treating.

Flame off - Avoid using Halloween decorations with real flames. Instead, use battery operated lights to illuminate your jack-o-lanterns. If you must use actual candles, never leave them unattended and keep them away for curtains.

House rules - Go with your children to door of every home you visit. Never let you children enter a strangers home without your permission. Only approach homes with lit porch lights or ones that clearly are inviting trick-or-treators.

Walk the walk - Always accompany your children when trick-or-treating. Wal, don't run, from house to house. Only cross streets at crosswalks.

Proper costumes - Choose brightly colored costumes or all reflective tape to increase visibility.  Ditch the masks.  They make it harder to cross streets safely.  Instead, opt for face paint.  Choose flame resistant costumes.  If buying a costume, check for a "flame resistant" notification on the label.  Glow sticks or flashlights are another way to increase visibility of your children.  Avoid points swords and sticks.  Insteand use cardboard and tape to make bendable props and accessories.

 

Law enforcement agencies will be out in force in Seneca County during this festive time to ensure the safety of everyone concerned.
