Be on alert for fraud
Fraudsters often take advantage of people when they are anxious and vulnerable. In times like these, it’s important to keep your guard up. Be on high alert for phishing emails relating to the coronavirus. Scammers often exploit on “hot news topics” to trick you into clicking on their websites and emails. Below are some tips to help keep you safe:
- Click to check the sender’s email address for grammatical errors or suspicious domains - including emails supposedly from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO)
- Emails from St. Mary’s Credit Union always come from @stmaryscu.org
- St. Mary’s Credit Union will NEVER ask you for personal information via email

- In late April, the Marlborough Police Department received several reports from residents, specifically senior citizens, about fraudulent telephone calls from people who claim that their grandchild or family member has been involved in an accident, is in police custody, or somehow is in need of a large amount of money. In addition, they claim that they have a courier who is nearby and can pick up the money. The courier vehicles have either been commercial vans, minivans or high end sedans. Several area departments are also reporting similar scams in which residents have lost thousands of dollars. Please do not make any withdrawals, wire any money or hand over cash to someone you do not know. If you are unsure of the identity of the caller or feel uncomfortable about the nature of the call, please call the Marlborough Police at 508-485-1212 (or your local police department's non emergency line) and report the incident.
