Radio Show #229 – Special Report on Scams with Chicopee Police Officer Michael Wilk

You’ve all heard about the Publisher’s Clearing House scam, already successful in bilking seniors out of large sums of money.

The phone is the primary port of access for this con game, but lately it has taken an even more ugly turn.

This is presented in full detail by Public Information Officer Michael Wilk.

Officer Wilk also touches on additional scams that are presently active in Western Mass.

We believe that knowledge is power, and in this case, protection.

Please listen in – and inform others of this program!
