BARTLETT POLICE ALERT! PHONE SCAMS

The Bartlett Police Department is warning the public, especially senior citizens, to be aware of increasing and ongoing phone scams that are occurring.

Previously, we warned about a scam where the caller will pretend to be a police officer, embassy official, doctor at a hospital or a lawyer, and in some cases the caller will pretend to be the grandchild or friend of the grandchild. The caller will say that the grandchild has been arrested, often in a foreign country, and they need money wired to them immediately so that the grandchild can get out of jail. This is commonly referred to by the F.B.I. as the “grandparent scam”.

We are now receiving daily reports from residents regarding another common phone scam, where the caller claims to be from the IRS, and the caller will tell the victim that they must pay tax money owed immediately or they will be arrested. These calls are frequently coming from outside the United States.

We want to remind residents to never give ANY personal information about yourself or your family to the caller. This includes bank account information, credit card or any other financial information. If you receive calls like this, hang up immediately.

Police Chief Janet Hadley Champlin
