Attention Vinton residents:

If you receive a phone call from “Social Security” warning you that if you DON’T return their call you could be arrested, it’s a scam!

I know I’ve received several of these calls with a recorded message, and others have as well.

ANOTHER SCAM we’ve been asked to alert you about:

If you’ve received a letter in the mail from a company that looks to be connected to Medicare, be warned! is the REAL name, it may be trying to mislead you and is a SCAM. is not the Medicare site.

Please warn your elderly friends and relatives who might be more vulnerable to this scam.
