Police Investigating Several Scams

City police are currently investigating a number of scams going around in the city.

One such scam involves being contacted by someone posing as a lawyer or police officer. 

They claim that a relative of the intended victim needs money immediately to help pay for a motor vehicle accident or bail.  The scammer requests the money to be sent immediately through Western Union and for the situation to be kept on the down low for fear of embarrassment.

You should notify police if you think you have been contacted by a scammer or have been defrauded.
