Police Blotter – You owe, you owe

  • Thursday, July 24, 2014

A woman called police after getting a fraudulent phone call from someone saying she owed almost $4,000 to the government.

The suspect said he worked for legal affairs and that the woman needed to go to Rite Aid and have money put in a Green Dot card which is a prepaid card. Thankfully, the victim believed the call to be a scam, so she called police.

She gave the officer the phone number the suspect called from and he did an internet search and confirmed it was a scam, the police report said.

When the officer tried calling the number, there was no answer.

The victim was told not to answer any calls from that number and to have the number blocked.
