Phone Scam Update
Local residents are continuing to receive calls from an automated message claiming to be from Winchester Federal Credit Union. Residents are reminded to hang up when they receive these calls. If you hang up and have not given your information on these calls, there is no need to call the police department. If you have given your information including your credit card number, please contact your bank immediately and then call the Winchester Police Department Non-Emergency number at (540) 662-4131 to file a police report. We appreciate your cooperation in this matter as our dispatchers are experiencing a very high call volume due to Apple Blossom Festival.
