On Monday 8/10/2020 Doylestown Township Police were informed of a gift card scam that had occurred.
An unknown subject persuaded a resident to purchase EBay gift cards and relay the card numbers over the phone. This resulted in the victim losing all funds placed on the cards.
The police want to public to know that no legitimate business will ever request payment in the form of gift cards remotely. These scammers drain the funds from the gift card after learning the numbers. If this happens to you, do not follow their instructions. Hang up and call your local police department. Spread the word so we can put these criminals out of business.
