2020 Common Scams – Irvine PD

Written by Terrie Covarrubias, Investigator

Irvine Police Department, Investigations Bureau

Criminals find new ways to scam others almost daily. It’s now more important than ever to do your due diligence before sharing any personal information or sending money of any kind to anyone. Below are some things to be aware of to avoid becoming a victim of fraudulent scams.

Criminals may contact you in multiple ways:

  • Phone, E-Mail, Text or U.S. Mail
  • Scammers claim they have information about you and may even provide old passwords or addresses of places you have lived. 

Before responding to anyone:

  • Only answer phone calls from known numbers.
  • Do not provide personal information to anyone contacting you.
  • If you have legitimate business, look up the contact information independently to confirm before responding.
  • Scammers may be friendly, instill fear, appear helpful, or pressure you to act quickly.

Coronavirus Scams:

  • COVID-19 Scam: This scam email says you’ll get money from a COVID-19 “Global Empowerment Fund.” You will be directed to respond with your bank account information and they will promise to transfer the funds. 
  • Scammers pretending to be from the government can rig caller ID to look like the call is coming from a government agency. Government agencies usually will not call you, especially about something related to money. They almost always contact you by U.S. mail.
  • Criminals may attempt to intercept unemployment benefits in your name.  
  • Criminals are selling products to treat or prevent COVID-19.
  • Be wary of ads for COVID-19 test kits. Most test kits being advertised have not been approved by the FDA and may not be very accurate.

Other Scams and Spoofing:

  • Spoofing is when someone tricks you into believing they are someone else by using a matching phone number, similar email address, or web page that looks just like the legitimate business.
  • Robocalls: Criminals pitch everything from low-priced health insurance to work-at-home schemes.
  • Counterfeit Prescription Drugs: Offers for better prices on medicines.
  • Funeral Scams: Overcharge on funeral costs or take advantage of a grieving spouse or other family member.
  • Grandparent Scam: Criminals pretend to be a grandchild that needs money for an emergency.
  • Internet Fraud: Fake virus pop-ups and phishing emails.
  • Phishing Emails: Ask you to click a link or provide personal information.
  • Medicare/Health Insurance/Social Security Scams: Try to extract personal information or threaten that you will lose benefits. 
  • Romance Scam: An online romantic interest asks you for money.
  • Sweepstakes/Lottery Scams: Claims you won money, but you need to pay a fee in order to get your winnings.
  • Tech Support: Poses as a legitimate company to fix your computer for a fee and may also ask to login to your computer remotely. 
  • Telemarketing/Phone Scams: Callers asking for personal information.
  • Gift Card Payments: If anyone is asking you to make a payment in gift cards for anything, it is a scam. 

Please report any crimes to the following agencies: 

Internet Crime Complaint Center - IC3.gov

Federal Trade Commission - FTC.gov

Irvine Police Department – 949-724-7000 or Local Police Agency

Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it’s likely to be a scam. We hope the above warnings help you to avoid losing your money to criminals. Be diligent and alert.

Temporary COVID-19 Tennis Court Rules

6/9/20 - CLICK HERE for the Temporary Tennis Court Rules.

All four tennis courts will reopen on Friday, May 15th for singles play only. Doubles play is prohibited to promote 6 foot distancing unless ALL members are of the same household. One on one instruction with a Woodbury approved instructor on court #4 will begin starting Tuesday, June 16th. 

There will be (30) minute gaps between reservations to allow for social distancing and for the health and welfare of all players. Once your reservation is over, player(s) must exit the court immediately.

These rules are intended to temporarily supplement existing tennis rules. Where there is a conflict between the existing rules and the temporary rules, the temporary rules prevail.

The Board has passed these temporary rules in order to allow residents to conditionally use a portion of the Association’s amenities. With that stated, it is the Board’s expectation that all residents will comply with these temporary rules. If any resident is found to be in non-compliance with any of these, or any other Association rules, the Board reserves the right to enforce said rules as it deems appropriate within its authority.

New Facility Key Identification Cards

The Woodbury Community Association is excited to announce the installation of a new and improved access system to the community pools and facilities at Woodbury. With the new technology, the Board of Directors have approved changing from our current key fob to a photo ID card/badge credential to access all of Woodbury’s amenities, including all pools areas and tennis/basketball courts. Over the next few weeks we will begin changing resident key fobs over to the new Facility Key Identification Photo Card.

Please know that the old fobs are deactivated and will no longer access the community amenities. It is important that you bring your fobs to the Association to change for the new facility ID cards during the upcoming scheduled dates.

The following is meant to provide you with important details and schedules about the card system change. Please review our schedule to choose the best date for your family to come to pick up your new cards. Please note that photos will be taken of all members of your household over the age of 14 and will be displayed on your personalized Facility Key Identification Card.

If you're unable to get everyone to come down together during this time, you can email in a group photo of your family and we can upload it into the system. Once you come to the office, we can print it here. Don't forget to bring your key fobs to exchange! If you are tenant, please ask the homeowner to fill out the application form prior to you coming by the office and switching out your key fob. 

Homeowners:

  • All homeowners will need to complete the new Facility Key Identification Card Application Form online at www.woodburyhoa.org. Please follow the instructions to submit your form to the Association office online. All forms can be emailed to kstephenson@keystonepacific.com if you would like our office to print them out.
  • If you prefer, you may complete the attached form and bring to the office on the dates selected below to obtain your new Facility Key Identification Card. No appointment is necessary, either email or bring your completed form to one of the dates listed below.
  • Woodbury residency will be verified when you obtain your new Facility Key Identification Card. Homeowners, please bring with you on the day of your card pick up, valid photo I.D. or a current utility bill that shows the Woodbury address and homeowner’s name. In addition, you must bring with you all current fobs to exchange for a new Facility Key Identification Card. Each home is allowed a maximum of two Facility Key Identification Cards. If you bring one key fob, then we will exchange for one photo card, if you bring two key fobs, then we will exchanged for two photo cards. Only two Facility Key Identification Cards will be issued per home and only upon presentation of the current key fob(s).
  • There is no cost to exchange your fob for the new Facility Key Identification Card. In the future, any new homeowner and/or tenant will need to obtain a new photo identification card from the Association. There will be a cost to the new homeowner and new tenant to purchase a photo identification card from the Association.
  • If your home is being rented – we must receive the Facility Key Identification Card Application Form prior to the tenant obtaining their new Facility Key Identification Card. Please know that a photo will be taken and printed onto the new card. If your tenant moves out, a replacement card and photo will be required of your new tenant.

The new map illustrates the areas that are pesticide free and that organic products are used when needed. The organic fertilizer will be applied four times throughout the year. These areas are identified in green. Areas that are color coded pink will only have pesticides used as needed and notifications will be posted on the website and bulletin board in advance of any localized, landscape treatment. The Board is conscientious of the community concerns and have made a level of commitment to enhance the level of service and products used at no current increase to homeowners.
