The Mifflin County Regional Police Department is warning the public of an email scam. Someone using an email address “email@example.com” and claiming to be a religious leader in the county is requesting the recipient to purchase Ebay cards and forward the PINs from the cards. The sender claims to be unable to purchase the cards and needs assistance. Once gift card numbers are forwarded to the scammer, there is often little recourse. If you receive an email requesting that you purchase gift cards, it is most likely a scam.
The Pennsylvania Senate has approved legislation that would provide $50 million in grants for Pennsylvania’s fire companies and EMS squads as they address the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. Senate Bill 1122 provides $44 million for grants to fire companies, and $6 million to benefit EMS stations.
