The Croton-on-Hudson Police Department released a list of calls they've received recently, and they investigated three reports of potential scams in just four days.
Back on the Aug. 18, police say a caller reported receiving multiple FedEx notices in the mail from what appeared to be her mortgage company requesting her banking information. She reached out to her mortgage company, and they said they did not request that information.
Later that day at a local CVS, a person called police after overhearing an elderly couple who purchased prepaid debit cards - reading the numbers off to a man on the phone. The bystander told the couple it might be a scam. Officers advised them it was.
Fast forward to Aug. 22, a third caller said they received a phone call from a person claiming to be an employee of Adult Protective Services reaching out on behalf of Wells Fargo because one of her accounts was compromised a few weeks ago. Again, it was a scam.
Police say if you get a call that seems unusual or something just seems off – trust your instincts and call the police at (914) 271-4781
