Burlington Police Warn of Scammers

According to a post from the Burlington WI Police Department, yesterday a woman in a grocery store was about to purchase about $1,000 worth of gift cards, when an employee heard her speaking on the phone with somebody. The employee suspected the woman might be on the phone with a scammer who was instructing her to purchase the gift cards. The employee stated that they were going to call the police, and the scammer heard and hung up the phone. The police department reminds you to not provide account numbers, credit card information, or purchase gift cards for somebody you don’t know. When in doubt, you can call dispatch at 262-886-2300.
