Scam Alert from City Police
The Fredericksburg Police Department has received multiple reports from people in the community receiving calls from their non-emergency phone number (540-373-3122) and the person identifying his or herself as an officer. During each call, the person is using scare tactics to gain personal information. Law enforcement will NEVER ask for money/gift cards or demand access to your financial accounts.
If something doesn’t feel right, ask the “officer” for their supervisor’s name, terminate the call, and follow up immediately with our agency to confirm if it is a real investigation. You can also ask the officer to visit you in person at your residence or business.
