Sugarcreek Borough police are warning residents about a likely increase in scam and fraud calls as tax season approaches.

Police said in a news release that the Social Security Administration doesn’t contact people by phone or email and that the agency doesn’t accept gift cards, Apple Pay or I-Tunes gift cards as a method of payment. Those things are a sure sign of a scam, police said.
