A spokesman for the Martin Police Department is alerting patrons of the C.E. Weldon Public Library in Martin that a scam is being used in that area. The library does not contact people about overdue books and request payment for fines by credit card. Anyone receiving such a call is advised to ignore the call and not to provide the requested credit card information.
The library never accepts fine payment by credit card.
