Unknown people are calling people all over the world and claiming to be the V.I. Police Department, demanding money or they will be prosecuted for crimes they didn’t commit, even if they have never been in the territory.
Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
