The Northern Regional Police Department would like you to be aware of a “scam” recently brought to our attention. Thieves are calling citizens and claiming a family member is in some type of trouble and they need money to pay for an attorney or to get them out of jail. Many times the thief will ask the citizen to purchase gift cards or money orders and mail them or transfer funds. If you would receive a call like this please contact the Northern Regional Police Department or your local police department as soon as possible. We would be glad to verify if a family member is in fact in need of help. A general rule of thumb is to never send money to anybody you did not initiate the transaction with. Legitimate businesses will NEVER ask you to pay for services with third party gift cards.
