Tidbits! February 2019
February 4, 2019

In the month of February, love is celebrated on Valentine’s Day!  Have you ever used the term “love you to the moon and back?”  Did you know that if you actually go to the moon and back you would have to declare your goods??

On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 made history with the first human operated expedition to the moon. Upon return, Astronaut Neil Armstrong and his colleagues had to declare the moon rock and moon dust samples to customs officials upon their return!

Happy Valentine’s Day!!!

U.S. Customs and Border Protection agents and officers nationwide are continuing reports of residents receiving unsolicited calls from scammers posing as U.S. Border Patrol agents and U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers. Individuals are reporting the calls are a pre-recorded message stating, “a box of drugs and money being shipped has your (callers) name on it and it has been intercepted.”  The caller is then instructed to press #1 to speak with a CBP Officer/Agent, which then attempts to get the callers banking information.  

These calls are phone scams/phishing attempts and residents are urged to not provide the caller with any information. The Department of Homeland Security and CBP does not solicit personal information by phone. If such calls are received, people should make a note of the number and any other pertinent details about the call and immediately hang up and report the incident if possible.

Phone scams can be reported to the Federal Trade Commission online at https://reportfraud.ftc.gov/.
