NORWALK, Conn. -- If you receive a robocall from someone claiming to work in the mayor's office announcing that Hillary Clinton is visiting Norwalk, don't believe it.

According to City Clerk Donna King, an East Avenue resident reported receiving a robocall around 3 p.m. Thursday from "Victoria" in the "Mayor's Office." The call is a fake, and has nothing to do with the real office of Norwalk Mayor Harry Rilling, King said.

The resident said that the robocall went on to say that during Clinton's visit "everyone is required to display an American flag, display only an American car (no Chinese-made cars allowed) and that all members of your family are required to memorize the National Anthem."

The voice on the call also said further details about Clinton's visit would be coming from the mayor, the resident reported.

The resident reported the mysterious fake robocall to both the State Election Enforcement Commission, and the city has asked the police to investigate if possible, King said.

The caller ID on the robocall listed the phone number as (203) 074-8045 and the caller ID location shows as "United States," King said.
