News Release: Tallahassee Police Department
The Tallahassee Police Department has received numerous complaints regarding a reoccurring scam in which an unknown person is calling citizens and identifying himself as a Tallahassee Police Officer. He then tells the citizen that they have a warrant for their arrest, but to avoid arrest, they can put money on a reloadable credit card. The green dot credit card is an example of this type card and can be purchased at either a store or on-line.
The Tallahassee Police Department assures all citizens that this is a scam. If you are contacted by this person, do not conduct any financial transactions and contact the Tallahassee Police Department immediately at (850) 606-5800. You should never conduct financial business over the phone or on-line unless you are certain of the businesses origin.
