    Scam alert

    Party on Lincoln Ave. stated she’d received a phone call from someone claiming to be with the Tax Board.  She became suspicious because the caller did not have a good command of the English language, claimed they just wanted to give her another phone number to call, and could not identify what type of agency they represented.

    Nothing bad has happened – yet
