Internet Purchase Exchange Location Now at Village Hall
Elk Grove Village is now offering an Internet Exchange Purchase Location! With the ever-growing number of online scams and the inherent difficulty in solving these crimes, more and more police departments are taking a proactive approach in designating their facilities as, “Safe Trade” or “Meet-Up Spots.”
Since 2011 and the inception of the “Meet-Up Spot,” Hundreds of locations have popped up nationwide. The Elk Grove Village Police Department believes this program would be a great benefit for our community and are excited to add its name to the national registry.
The concept of these locations is to provide a safe place for online buyers and sellers to exchange their goods and money. The Village offers two “Meet- Up" spots--one located within the police department lobby and one in the Police Department Parking lot.
Next time you need to meet up to buy or sell online, feel free to utilize use either of these new internet exchange purchase locations at 901 Wellington Ave--just look for the Internet Exchange Purchase Location signage.
