Scams -- Beware!

Check Deposit Scam:

Citizens have reported receipt of phony checks. An example is to the right. Do not cash or deposit these checks. More information can be found here. Please report any fraudulent checks to the Davidson Police Department at 704-892-5131.

IRS Phishing Scams:

Watch out for IRS scams and identity theft issues, especially around tax season. In the past, we have received reports from citizens saying that when they submitted their information to the IRS to request a refund, the refund had already been awarded to someone who stole their identity. Other scams include phone calls from someone claiming to be from the IRS. The IRS never calls citizens, but makes contact via mail.
