So instead of contacting you about a tax debt and making threats to get you to pay up, scammers may send you a text about a “tax rebate” or some other tax refund or benefit. He...

Help Prevent Catalytic Converter Theft

The Yonkers Police is investigating recent catalytic converter thefts in our area, and would like to offer simple tips to help prevent future incidents:

What is a Catalytic Converter?

A catalytic converter (CAT) is an emissions control device that's in the exhaust system, found underneath a vehicle.

Why are they targets for theft?

Inside a CAT are three precious earth metals: platinum, rhodium, and palladium. Criminals who steal CAT's sell them for profit.

What can I do to protect myself and my vehicle?

- Report suspicious behavior by calling the Yonkers Police at (914) 377-7900; emergencies dial 9-1-1 or 377-7777. Often times CAT thieves will prowl in the middle of the night; tools used may include a reciprocating saw - the entire event can happen in under a minute. If you hear metal sawing noises at night, it could be a CAT thief at work.

- Park in a garage or other secured area when possible.

- Park in a well lit area or near motion lights.

- Park in view of surveillance cameras, or have them installed to watch your driveway.

- Consider having your repair shop engrave your vehicle's VIN number on the CAT, or even weld a cage over the CAT.

They promise you a job, but what they want is your money and your personal information. Here are some examples of jobs scams and tips to help you avoid them.
