Local alert system
Getting information out quickly about scams is important. By the time the local newspaper or the police department is aware of a problem, the scammers are often long gone.
With /scam-alerts neighbors can share information and keep an eye out for each other. Someone spending a little too much time in a yard that’s not theirs? Neighbors can quickly confirm if that person lives in the area, and someone can politely but firmly say hi to let him / her know that residents are on the lookout for each other. Someone offering to do yard work but you’re not sure if they’re reliable? Check in on /scam-alerts to see if anyone’s reported back on them.
We are building the local web, and sharing a new way to use it each day.
