Police Alert Public to Bank Scam

July 20th, 2017


The police department is warning residents of a scam involving a fraudulent letter from TD Bank. A resident received a letter last week on bank letterhead, giving it an aura of legitimacy. However, it's fake, police said. In the letter, a bank account executive claims he's looking for next of kin for a $47.5 million bank account. The letter says a person with the same last name as the recipient died in a car crash. The writer asks the recipient to contact him at an email address. Anyone who receives a similar letter is asked to report it to police.
