ATTN: Those packing up and leaving the KMC

Moving companies that support the KMC have already reached their capacity for customers until June 8! Many members wait too long to begin the household goods moving process, thereby causing additional stress and delays. The 86th Logistics Readiness Squadron Personal Property Office advises movers to call them three weeks before moving to begin the booking process.

Beware of new scam

Polizei has been made aware of a new phone scam where fraudsters send a SMS stating that a package has been sent. The texts can look very legitimate and ask users to click a link to find out where the package is being held or to confirm the parcel shipment via the link. Clicking the link will install malware on your device.

Should you receive such a text message:

  • Under no circumstances should you tap the link!
  • Delete the message!
  • If your phone asks whether an app should be installed, do not confirm under any circumstances!
  • Set up a third-party block through your wireless service provider.

Here’s what you should do if the app has already been installed:

  • Switch your cell to airplane mode
  • Let Security Forces know!
  • Call your service provider and inform them of the problem.
