Awareness From Resident Prevents Scam, Mukwonago Police Asking For Awareness
Mukwonago Police are informing the community about a scam. An individual who had became aware of a scam dropped a package they were about to send in the mail at the police station. Police say scammers use the common scheme of asking for packages to be mailed by preying on the elderly and using emotional situations such as an issue with grandchildren, to have their demands met. The scammers ask the individual to gather certain items including cash and to mail the package out. The department says that the individual made a heads up move to call family members and identify that it was a scam before sending the package, and then contacting the police. Mukwonago Police says they field these scam complaints numerous times. More information is posted to the Village of Mukwonago Police Department on Facebook.
