Watertown Police Warning About Scam
Watertown Police are asking the public to be mindful of a scam. The department says they had received multiple phone calls about scammers pretending to be police officers. The officers will find an excuse to get the caller to buy a gift card to fix whatever issue they present you with. The scammers have been using fear tactics to make the caller react hastily. The department asks those who may receive this call to personally verify that the family member is OK, and don’t send any money or gift cards to the scammer. Contact your local law enforcement agency if you do not know if its a scam. More information is available on the Watertown Police Department FB page.
