6:13 am
in fact, sometimes the scammer would say an officer was 45 minutes away from their house. the scammer gave two options. 1) they could go to court and get a defense lawyer that would cost $20,000 dollars or 2) they could go to wal mart or cvs and get a money gram for the full amount. gram for the full amount. virginia's better business bureau says to never give any credit card information over the phone. never trust callers who are threatening or hostile. an irs agent will never get the police or an immigration agent. if you have been targetted by a scam you can go to ftc- dot-gov and use the complaint assistant portal. the irs did put this statement out due to the recent scams sweeping the area. the irs will always send taxpayers a written notification of any tax due via the u.s. mail. the irs never asks for credit card, debit card or prepaid card information over the telephone" kroger is getting ready to offering narcan - a heroin overdose reversal drug, several

6:20 am
nations. yet, it offers its own welcoming commitee for people from all nationalities and religious backgrounds, including muslims. local colors executive director beth lutjen says they've long been a part of our community. beth lutjen/local colors executive director: it's not that in the last few years, muslims have first come to america. muslims have been here for many, many, many years. they are a part of the american story." that story includes roanoke's masjid- an- nur mosque, whose founding members were u- s army veterans. that's a little known fact its assistant imam, arthur mcdonald brought to our attention when we sat down with him. mcdonald's married, with two sons in roanoke city public schools. virginia's been his home for over 20 years, and roanoke for the last four. arthur mcdonald/ roanoke resident: we love mill mountain. we love going to the zoo up there. my youngest son, he loves chuck e cheese, so we're always going to chuck e cheese. mcdonald says he loves living here. his experience has largely been a positive one, with
6:21 am
year's vandalism at the mosque. a broken glass panel is a reminder of the hateful gesture he says that came as a shock to him. arthur mcdonald/ roanoke resident: we were kind of afraid, because we didn't know what would be next. mcdonald says islam requires prayer several times a day, yet some people have the wrong idea about it. arthur mcdonald/ roanoke resident:that islam hates americans and the west. i think that is the biggest misnomer. kimberly mcbroom/wdbj7: we reached out to others in the muslim community. many said they just don't feel comfortable putting themselves in the spotlight, because of the negative attention muslims often get. one man told me he wants people to know that islam doesn't sanction violence, but is a religion of peace and mercy. the muslim population is also growing sector of our population. according to 20-10 numbers from the association of religion data archives, muslims make up about seven percent of the roanoke metro area. in a gesture of community and good will, the mosque made a 25- hundred- dollar donation to the roanoke rescue mission back in december.
6:22 am
community relations, and earned a lot of positive feedback on the mosque's facebook page. there's still a long way to go. fear and misunderstanding remain the biggest obstacles. arthur mcdonald/ roanoke resident: you know, we're just regular people. we might dress a little different sometimes, but it's nothing for anyone to be fearful of. lutjen agrees, and reminds us not to judge the majority by just a small minority. beth lutjen/local colors: what we don't understand sometimes we fear. and fear is negative. there is just not a good side to fear. muslims tag mcdonald says the mosque is extending an invitation to the entire community to learn more about the islam faith. he says it will be hosting an open house in the next couple of months. there are also many websites with information about islam. we've included a few of them for you on our website, wdb7-dot-com. just click on this story. when you think of the president of the united states, you probably think of washington, dc and the white house. but there's a place
