*COVID-19 ADVICE- SCAM AWARENESS
Astonishing and outrageous to have to post scam awareness warnings when people are up against so much already! But, please be aware that at a time when communities are pulling together and doing amazing things to help each other out, there are still unscrupulous, dishonest people out to take advantage of the situation. OCC has a list of the most common scams but if any request or offer is made to you, take time to consider it, speak to someone else and don’t be afraid to say that you will get back to the person asking. If they are genuine they will not mind.
