Our department is receiving multiple reports of a postal scam. Reports indicate that they have received a flier or post card in the mail asking them to join an online network called "nextdoor . com". It outlines this website as utilizing a free private online network sharing recommendations, items for sale and safety concerns, etc. In the reports we've received, the card or paper asks the recipient to go to the website and enter a code. After entering this code, it took them to an unwanted adult website and locks your computer. The next prompt you will receive is instructions on how to unlock your computer for a fee. If you should received this in the mail, we strongly urge you to be cautious as the information you receive could be this type of scam.
