 SCAM ALERT: In the last two days, we have gotten several calls of a scam targeting our Spanish-speaking community. 

The scammer calls from +52-899-524-2336  with several different scenarios (a loved one is in trouble, in jail, being held hostage, has had a wreck, etc. in Mexico) and the victim needs to give money in the form of gift cards to the scammer. Some of the increments requested have been up to $10,000. 


Thankfully no one has lost money as of yet to these scammers. 


Please help us get the word out to prevent anyone from falling victim to this scam. 


(I used Google for the translation so if it is rough, please forgive me.)
