  1. Anyone who get calls from someone asking for any kind of payment over the phone, should just hang up. Police department and another government institution will send you letter if they want to notify you something important. I have just Googled up about this scam and found some reports filed by people at https://www.whycall.me/216-539-5360.html since few months ago. We need to keep spreading the word about these scams to our family.
