ELECTION SCAM ALERT

The East Lampeter Township Police want to remind our citizens to remain vigilant during this election season.  Scammers may try to take advantage of the information overload that is presented through the media.  

Do not:

- Provide any banking or personal identifying information to anyone who requests it

- Scam emails appear to be legitimate  

- Legitimate pollsters do not ask for gift cards or other compensation for participation

- Ensure your device has the most recent security updates available which includes antivirus protection

- Delete any emails from senders you do not recognize and only open attachments from verified legitimate/known sources.
