One of the City of Rexburg’s on-going crimes is Identity Theft.
The victims range from youth to the elderly and cover all ranges of social staus and income.
Unfortunately, due to a lot of scammers being from overseas, we are limited to the amount of follow-up that can be done, so prevention is the key.
“If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is”. If you receive a check in the mail from any source, confirm first with the bank that it is a valid check prior to placing the check into your bank account. Ask your financial institution how long it will take for the check to completely clear and do not withdraw or spend the funds until it has been cleared by the bank. Thousands of dollars are lost yearly by Citizens of Rexburg and at the point where they come into the Police Department to report the Fraud there is usually nothing that can be done about it.
