CICERO, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — A scam to watch out for. Phone thieves are ringing Cicero neighbors, pretending to be with Cicero Police, asking for personal information to deposit a relief or rebate check.
The phone number starts with 315-699 and the caller id says “Town of Cicero.” But don’t fall for it. STAR rebate checks are sent from the state, not the town. The town never calls to ask for credit card information over the phone.
If you got the scam call or just want to double check, you can call the correct phone number at (315) 750-1180.
