A Message from King City Police Department & City Hall.

There has been a rise in the number of reported phone & computer scams lately. Recent scams include: IRS Tax evasion claims, FBI warnings, Failure to pay = Arrest by Local Police, etc... Please do not give your identification or credit card information to anyone over the phone. The IRS and FBI will not ask you to pay over the phone via credit card.

Other scams include Computer Virus warnings, you should avoid allowing a remote desktop from a random organization to access your computer system.

I urge all of you to double check and fact check information you receive online, over the phone, or at your door step. In the information era there is a lot of misleading information floating around designed to take advantage of good natured people.

Additionally, with these hot temperatures I would just remind people that there are local cooling centers including City Hall if you find yourself suffering from the heat.

I wish you all the best and hope you are all enjoying your Summer.

Kind Regards,

Mike Weston
City Manager, King City
