Scam Alert - Announced by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Community Services
West Ilex Park:
Our elderly Hispanic community needs to beware of subjects calling from blocked or out of state phone numbers that they don’t recognize making ransom request alleging that a family member has been kidnapped, in need of money for a bond after an arrest, or in need money for emergency surgery due to an accident. They need to take precautions and not divulge too much family related information on social media websites which allow these predators to victims the Hispanic community.
Usually the scams works as follows:
A family member is contacted by the suspect who demands money and requires the victim to stay on the line and respond to the nearest Wal-Mart. They are then order to purchase a green dot Visa or other similar card and load the card with cash. Sometimes based on the amount this may require the victim to buy more than one card as some cards have limits. The victim is then required to read the number off of the back of the card and the suspect withdrawls the money instantly. Usually afterwards the exchange the victim contacts law enforcement.
This is a Business Partnership Program E-Alert from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

FREE PRESCRIPTION DISCOUNT CARD PROGRAM
START SAVING ON PRESCRIPTIONS TODAY!
The Town is a participant in the National League of Cities (NLC) Prescription Discount Card Program through which prescription discounts are available at participating pharmacies including Walgreens, Costco, CVS Pharmacy, Walmart, Publix Pharmacy, and Robalo Pharmacy. The Town worked diligently with NLC officials in getting the information regarding this important program translated into Haitian Creole, which has resulted in the information being available to Town residents in English, Spanish and Haitian Creole. Town residents may pick up a Free Prescription Discount Card at Lake Park's Town Hall or the Lake Park Public Library.
This prescription discount card program is not insurance, it is a prescription discount program that is free to Town residents and can provide savings of up to 75 percent off the retail price of prescription medication. It cannot be used to supplement insurance benefits; however, residents who are without health insurance or a traditional pharmacy benefit plan or who have prescriptions not covered by insurance, are able to obtain their medications at a discount. The cards are widely accepted at all national chain pharmacies and most local independent pharmacies.
