Peru Police Department

There is another phone scam to watch out for.

A woman called the Peru Police Department on Monday to say she got a “223” number that showed up on caller ID as being from the city of Peru.  The pre-recorded message said the woman just had to push a button to accept or opt out for a life alert system. 

The woman knew it was a scam fortunately.  She hung up and reported it to police.
