From Cheektowaga PD:
***PUBLIC SAFETY ANNOUNCMENT***
From October 1- December 1st we took 33 reports for stolen vehicles. In the Cleveland Hill area, 3 vehicles were taken all within the 6am hour. Vehicles are being stolen after residents are leaving their vehicles running to warm up. One of the vehicles was running outside a convenience store. With the colder weather upon us, we need the public to keep their vehicles locked at all times and not leave their keys in the vehicle. Please push this information out and notify your neighbors and friends of these crimes taking place.

From Cheektowaga PD:

We have had a couple reports come in this week regarding the Amazon scam. Amazon Prime members are falling prey to fraudsters after receiving a call from "Amazon Prime Security" stating their Amazon account has been compromised with fraudulent purchases. The scammers tell the account holders to remedy the issue, they need to purchase various store gift cards and provide them with the account numbers. Most people when we try to advise people about these scams say I would never, or who would actually fall for that..... A LOT OF PEOPLE. We take these reports from numerous victims from all ages every week!! Please do not fall for these. Here are some tips on how to protect yourself...
1. TIME IS ON YOUR SIDE - Scammers will try to keep you on the line and pressure you that you need to act fast or there will be consequences. DO NOT RUSH and send money right away.
2. HANG UP - Hang up the phone and call that company directly with a number you look up, not one provided by them.
3. NO GIFT CARD PAYMENTS - No reputable business askes for payments in gift cards.
4. DO NOT SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION - Do not share your information with someone that contacted you unsolicited whether its over the phone, via email or social media. No birthdate, social security numbers etc.
5. DO NOT CLICK LINKS PROVIDED BY UNSOLICITED EMAILS - Unreliable links will download malware on your computer, smart phone or tablet. Be cautious even with an email that looks familiar.
With the holiday season approaching we have to be extra vigilant on online scams.
