Naperville police warn residents to be watchful for scams

The Naperville Police Department (NPD) is alerting the public to be on the lookout for scams after a resident recently reached out reporting a suspicious text.

The NPD said in a Facebook post that the resident had received a text with his home address included, which was prompting him to click a link to “confirm his registration status” to get him registered to vote.

Police say if you get an unexpected text, call, or email from someone you don’t know asking you for personal information or financial account information, to be wary. Don’t click on any links, return calls, or give any personal information to anyone whose contact and business information you have not verified first online.
