Speaking during an event held by the St. Lucy Council of Catholic Women, members of the Delray Beach Police Department’s detective division addressed an audience of 90 women about the increase in crime via computers and from telephone solicitors. Police said a current scam involves calls requesting prepaid credit cards to pay off false IRS bills or false hospital costs for grandchildren. They advised the women to hang up and report the calls to police and not to provide any personal information.
