The Ames Police Department is warning residents about a new scam.
Officials say someone has been placing false delivery notification stickers on doors.
They are similar to notes used by legitimate companies like UPS and FedEx. The scam notifications don’t have a company name on it, but do have a 1-866 number.
The scam tries to get people to call and hand over credit card numbers.
Anyone who receives one of these notices is encouraged not to respond.
