IMPORTANT - Phone Scam Alert
Posted on Wednesday January 16, 2019
ALERT from Barrington Police Department


In the last several days, the Barrington Police Department has been made aware of a phone scam in our area involving callers claiming to be from Apple (caller ID often shows “Apple”) who tell our residents that their iCloud accounts have been compromised. Residents are then asked to purchase expensive gift cards at local retailers in order to solve the issue.

Please be alert to these calls – the caller is not from Apple; this is a scam and is not a valid claim. If you receive such a call, please DO NOT take any further action and call the Barrington Police Department at 847-304-3300 immediately to report the caller.

Thank you,
Police Chief David Dorn
