It's time for the census to be taken. The Amarillo Police Department wants you to know what to look for, so that you don't fall victim to scams.

Earlier today, the APD put this message out on Facebook:

The main things to look for will be the laptop computer with the census logo on it, and the black bag with the census logo on it. Plus, those actually working on behalf of the census will have a government ID on them.

Be sure to look over the information and familiarize yourself with the details. The best thing to do is ask questions. If you still feel like the individual you are dealing with may still be a "scammer," call the numbers listed.
