'Tis the season to be jolly...and vigilant. Thanks to these little thingamajigs we hold in our hands called mobile phones, scamming has become all the rage. And it really seems to heat up around the holidays.

This new one that prompted a warning from the Owensboro Police Department involves callers posing as members of the U.S. Treasury Department.

Like they would EVER call us like that.

BUT...like that they ARE calling us and asking for money.

The OPD has fielded several complaint calls from folks who've been on the receiving end of calls from lowlifes threatening them with legal action if they don't send money.

I would hope no one reading this would EVER give in to something like that, but forewarned is forearmed.

Just be careful and happy holidays!
