Montgomery Police cautions against debit card scam

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

From the Montgomery Police Department:

The Montgomery Police Department is cautioning area residents after receiving reports of debit card scammers posing as police officers and demanding payment to avoid the threat of arrest.

The scammers direct people to obtain a Green Dot MoneyPak card, or reloadable debit card, and provide the number on the card so the scammer can collect payment. The scammers claim that payment is due for an outstanding debt or fine, and that an arrest warrant will be issued if payment is not made.

MPD advises that the department does not conduct phone call solicitations for funds. The department warns the public against responding to debit card scammers and advises anyone who receives such a call to report it to MPD's Criminal Investigation Division, 334-625-2831.
