Duluth, MN- The Duluth Police Department is reminding residents to be mindful of scams this holiday season. They warn to never give out any personal or financial information and to be thoughtful of what you post on social media. Additionally, never let a caller rush you into purchasing anything or giving information, talk to someone else before making any decisions. They add if you think you’ve been the victim of a scam to call the federal trade commission immediately to report it.
