The old adage of “if it’s too good to be true, it probably is” could be used to stop nearly any scam that sets out to gain money, but people continue to lose thousands of dollars to the same kinds of scams.
Whether it’s winning a supposed lottery, getting paid too much for an item sold online or giving a bank account or credit card number to someone over the phone, there are dozens of ways scammers claim their loot.
With a price tag of about $20,000, Churubusco will move forward with new radios for its police department.
The four radios for the town’s police cars and two handheld radios will operate on an 800 MHz frequency that many police in the state, including the Indiana State Police, use now or plan to use in the near future.
The town council approved the purchase this week for the radios, some of which will not be available until November.
