Police warn of telephone scam


Island Lake police and village officials are warning people about a telephone scam that's been reported in the suburbs. The recorded message, which sounds like a message from a police department, says the FBI and police agencies recommend burglar alarm signs be placed in yards to deter burglars. The speaker then prompts people to press buttons to learn more about alarm systems. Officials urge people to hang up and not press any buttons. Doing so could lead to personal information being collected, officials said.
