The Grand Forks Police Department wants you to be aware of a new scam reported in the area.

Residents have reported receiving letters addressed to them from OneMain Financial offering a personal loan in the amount of 1,500 dollars. When recipients called the number on the letter, the answering party asked for personal information from the caller like the caller's Social Security Number. The recipients had made no requests to the bank for the loans.

Police remind you to never provide personal information to anyone unless you are certain of their identity.

You do not need to contact police unless you have divulged your information.
