The Marseilles Police Department reminds everyone to be cautious with the many COVID-19 scams that are going around. If you have questions about a possible scam or want to report a scam, call the Marseilles Police Department at 815-795-2131.
Below are just a few things to look out for:
• HVAC cleaning to “protect” you from COVID-19.
• Authentic looking emails meant to steal personal information.
• Callers claiming to be from Medicaid and Medicare offering COVID-19 tests as long as you pay with a credit card.
• Callers asking for personal information needed to send stimulus checks. Remember that government agencies will never call you to ask for personal information or money.
• Fake websites asking for donations for familiar organizations.

9:00 p.m. – “The Osbournes Want To Believe" (TRAVEL)
Jack Osbourne is determined to make his parents, Ozzy and Sharon, full-fledged paranormal believers. Dim the lights and settle in for fun, scares and unfiltered humor in Travel Channel’s new series, The Osbournes Want To Believe. They might be known as the first family of darkness, but when it comes to the paranormal, legendary rocker Ozzy Osbourne and his wife, The Talk co-host Sharon Osbourne, are borderline skeptics. Determined to turn them fully to the other side, Jack reunites with Ozzy and Sharon to share the craziest, most jaw-dropping videos of supernatural activity ever caught on camera. But the question still remains if the Prince and Princess of Darkness will see the light when it comes to the paranormal, or if they think it’s just another ride on the crazy train.
