October 1, 2020

  • Patrol was dispatched to CVS for the report of a fraud in progress around 4:30 pm. It was reported that an elderly female customer was currently in the store with someone on the phone asking her to purchase several gift cards. Upon arrival, police spoke with the female who explained that she tried to cancel her Showtime subscription and found a phone number to use from a website. When she contacted the number, a male answered and stated he would help her cancel the subscription. He then spoke to her for a while and gained information about her bank accounts and her debit card number.  The male then told her that she needed to pay him to put a block on her personal information so no one could get it. She was instructed to go to any Walmart, CVS, or Target to buy gift cards to pay for the block. She initially purchased a $50.00 EBay gift card and provided the information to the male. He then asked her to go back and buy three more gift cards. When the victim tried to buy the rest of the gift cards, a CVS employee was able to intervene and contacted police.  An officer assisted the victim by helping her cancel her debit card and spoke to the scammer to cease contact.
