For your safety

Out of an abundance of caution, UD Police are increasing patrols on Oct. 5 in light on unspecified threat of violence against an unnamed Philadephia-area college or university.

Anyone who receives such a message should hang up because it is a phishing scam. Under no circumstances should a recipient of the call enter their card number.

No legitimate business will call or contact you and ask for personal or private banking information.
