Yesterday, Hialeah Police sent out a Public Service Announcement to all Hialeah residents via telephone. It was communicated in English and Spanish it went like this:
If a stranger tries to sell you or asks you for your help cashing a winning lottery ticket which they cannot cash because they claim to be illegal immigrants, end the conversation quickly, leave the area and call the police. This is always a scam. Thank you and have a safe evening.
In the Spanish version they were a little more direct saying "this is an attempt to rob you " instead of "this is always a scam."
It's pretty cool that the Hialeah Police Department is embracing this new technology we call "the phone".
