Scam artists are getting more creative and bolder in tricking people out of their money and local law enforcement agencies are informing the public to take heed. Kewaunee Police recently received a complaint from a resident who received a letter in the mail that was made to look like it was from the Kewaunee Police Department. It requested $10 to be sent to the National Police Association in Texas. The Door County Sheriff’s Department reported on a social media post earlier this week that a person posing as a member of the department called a community member using a spoofed phone number to make it look like the general non-emergency number. The caller told the potential victim that he had a warrant out for his arrest and unless he made arrangements to post bond he would be arrested the next day. Both the Kewaunee Police and the Door County Sheriff’s Department ask people to be careful not to give personal information to callers or solicitations that could be perpetuating a scam. You can find the two local scam alerts posts by both agencies below.
