Phone Scam Alert

There have been reports of a phone scam recently.

The callers target grandparents and will tell them it’s one of their grandchildren and they are in trouble and in need of money. It is very possible that the caller will know family details, which they have obtained through various means.  They will then request money be sent to a law office to pay for the legal expenses.

You are advised to call law enforcement if you receive such a call.


We have recently had a problem with Solicitors in the Village that do not have Solicitor permits from the Village of Lyndon.  Please if you get solicitors at your door ask to see their Solicitor permit from the Village of Lyndon.  If they do not have one ask them to leave and then call Village Hall to report them.                  815-778-4484  We will be making up some NO SOLICITING signs that you can pickup at Village Hall and display in a window or on a door.
