Recent phone scam

 
 
New Castle County Police are alerting 
residents about a recent phone scam


New Castle County Police Department NEWS RELEASE - "Crime Alert" Phone Scam

The New Castle County Police would like to warn citizens of a recent phone scam.

During this past weekend (9/27, 28), the New Castle County Police have received over 50 reports from residents stating they have received calls from a person with a strong accent, claiming to be a representative from the "Department of Treasury" and the "Internal Revenue Service." Victims reported the suspect stated they owed back taxes and advised them they would be arrested if they did not pay immediately.

The New Castle County Police is requesting citizens to report any suspicious telephone calls from people claiming to be a law enforcement officer or agent of the government. Citizens should know that law enforcement officials will not solicit money in lieu of an arrest.

Earlier this year, suspects involved in similar scams called victims stating there is a bench warrant for their arrest or that they had unpaid tickets. The victims were then instructed to purchase a pre-paid credit card such as NetSpend. The cards purchased by the victims are over $1,000.

For scams involving the IRS or claims of owed money for back taxes, citizens are encouraged to make a report to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration at http://www.treasury.gov/tigta/ and click the link for "IRS Impersonation Scam Reporting." Citizens can also call the IRS at 1-800-829-1040.

Anyone that has been a victim or that has provided their financial information to an individual over the phone can contact the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Unit by calling the Hotline at 1-800-220-5424 or emailing consumer.protection@state.de.us. Delawareans who suspect that they have provided their bank card information to a scammer should also immediately contact their financial institution.

Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to please contact the New Castle County Police Department at (302) 573-2800. You can also submit a tip anonymously by going to www.NCCPD.com and follow the link for "Tips and Alerts." You will be asked for a subject line, the location the tip applies to, and your tip information. Tipsters may also call Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-333. Residents with the NCCPD Smartphone App are encouraged to use the "submit tip" tab to submit tips by selecting a topic using the "drop down" and complete the tip by "clicking" submit.

Brookland Terrace Civic Club Pavement Marking Request Centerville Road / Greenbank - Faulkland Rd.

With the upcoming repaving of Centerville Road we saw some areas that needed updated pavement markings to improve longstanding safety concerns .

- Trenton - Albany - NO Parking pavement markings with striping with No Parking spelled out 

- Albany - Brookland No parking pavement markings with striping with No Parking spelled out on south half of block & Turn Lane pavement markings with a bank on remaining north half of block . (this is a two house block )

 


      Some thing similar to this striping but with No Parking spelled out

This two blocks of no parking has been there for 30+ years all 4 residents agreed to the above .

 
Example of tapering requested 

Brookland Ave connects with Centerville Road at a awkward angle with poor visibility , turn lane bank would allow for safer entrance to Brookland Ave  via NB Centerville Road

Brookland Ave - Faulkland Road  similar to current markings but with Pavement Markings tapered to the corner allowing good sight lines when exiting .

- Yellow No Parking with striping with No Parking spelled out at bus stops Vermont Ave bus stop bus shelter in the 600 block of NB Centerville Rd

There is existing no parking at Vermont Ave bus stop & at bus shelter in the 600 block of NB Centerville Rd.

- Marbrook School Yellow No Parking with striping with No Parking spelled out Pavement Markings on the SB side Centerville where there is no parking currently   .

This no parking zone on SB Centerville at Marbrook entrances in conjunction with strict enforcement of the use of the student pick up lane has greatly improve visibility for crossing guards .

- Pedestrian cross walks preserved as they currently are from Greenbank - Faulkland Road

- There is currently a lack of handicapped curb access at Marbrook School .

Will the lack of handicapped curb cut be addressed prior to or during the repaving ?
