Like any scam, should you get an email or a “pop-up” window while on the computer, don’t click on any links.  You could download a computer virus.

Other tips to remember:

·       Be cautious of any email claiming to be from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Unless you subscribed, how did they get your email address.  Go to the CDC ( website directly to obtain information.   

·       Ignore offers for vaccinations.  Currently, there are no vaccines, pills, herbal medicine, etc. to treat, prevent or cure the virus.

 The following are the materials related to the press conference held on March, 2, 2020.


There has been a recent scam where the suspects are claiming they are from the South Pasadena Police Department and tell the victim that there is a warrant for their arrest, and demand payment in bitcoin or pre-paid debit cards (i.e., Green Dot cards).  The caller ID may display the police department or City of South Pasadena to make the call more convincing. 

The police department does NOT ask for payment in bit coins, cash, checks, credit card, etc.  

Should you get a call from someone representing the South Pasadena Police Department and asking for payment for an outstanding warrant, hang-up. 

You can always call the police department at 626-403-7297 to verify if we called you.
