State Patrol Scam
Yet.......another scam. The Wisconsin State Patrol is warning about a
phone scam in which a caller identifies himself as a sergeant from the State Patrol Green Bay office and asks for money to resolve a car crash involving a relative of the person called. The State Patrol has received information that people on at least two occasions were called by a man who identified himself as Sergeant Walker of the State Patrol office in Green Bay. The fake sergeant asked for $900 to pay for damages caused by the person’s child or grandchild in a crash. The fake sergeant said the money, which needed to be wired immediately, would fix the damages so the other driver would not press charges.
The State Patrol has investigated the calls, and the scam likely originated in Montreal, Canada.
