Pulaski police warn of scams
The Pulaski Police Department is warning residents of two telephone scams.
One scam targets senior citizens, and the caller pretends to be a relative asking for money to be wired, according to a news release. Police recommend that individuals who receive this call ask the caller personal questions that only a relative would be able to answer. Anyone with information or questions about this scam is being asked to call Crime Prevention Officer Megan Jennings at (540) 994-8676.
Another scam is from a supposed collection agency for a cash advance loan company. The caller claims that the victim is delinquent in a payday cash advance loan, according to the release. The caller may threaten the victim and will likely request that the amount be paid using a pre-paid card. The caller provides a call-back number that is either disconnected or unreachable but will mail paperwork that will provide a facsimile number, according to the release.
Anyone with information or questions about this scam is being asked to call the Pulaski Police Department at (540) 994-8680.
