campaign by making his donation to Cam-paign

businesses, individuals, and social and ser-vice
organizations, has as its aim the promotion,
through major regional media, of the Village as a
community, as a shopping center offering person-alized
service, and as a locale of fine restau-rants.

Chief Warns About Con Games
Police Chief Antnuny Elar cautions Freeporters
not to be taken in by swindlers who use one of
the oldest "con" games known to man. He warns
against being fooled by "get-rich-quick" schemes
in which elderly or poor people are most frequent-ly
cheated. Reports have come in that Freeporters
have been victimized by the old confidence racket
based on the lure of easy money.
A pocketbook or wallet containing what appears
to be a large sum of money is found by one of the
pair of swindlers in view of the selected victim.
The victim is then approached by the "finder" who
explains that although he actually found it, he
is in a hurry to catch a bus or train and for some
reason cannot take it with him. At this point,
the other member of the pair, presumably a disin-terested
party, joins in and suggests that the
victim hold the money until the next day when he
will meet with the "finder," and they will then
share the findings. For security and to assure
them of his good faith, the victim is asked to
give the disinterested party whatever money or
valuables he has on him. In the meantime, the
"find" has been switched and when the victim
gets home he finds that he has been given a purse
or wallet filled with paper and has been swindled
out of his own money and valuables.
Freeport merchants should be aware of yet another
con game. A man walks into a store, and in full
view of the owner, unsuccessfully attempts to in-sert
a large number of $1 bills into a gift en-velope.
He then asks the owner for five 520 bills
in exchange for the 100 singles he's trying to get
into the envelope. He hands over 99 singles, re-ceives
the 20's and places them into the envelope
which he seals, and places in his pocket as the
owner counts the singles. When challenged about
the J99, he withdraws a sealed gift envelope, a
second one containing only paper, leaves it with
the owner while he "just run to the car to get a
dollar from my wife," and dissapears $100 richer.
Should anyone approach you with such schemes,
play it cool and refuse to participate. Then
notify the Police Department giving them as good
a description as you can of the people who approached
you, including car model and make, and license
number if a car was involved.

Contact Inter-County at 536-7100 to arrange to donate to help others while insuring that the blood
needs of their family will be met for the next year.
Telephone Service Requests
When calling Village Hall to request a particu-lar
Municipal Service, please ask for the depart-ment

which Village department would handle your request,
please very briefly tell the switchboard operator
the gist of the problem and she will refer your
call to the proper department or individual.
