5/22/2023 - PHONE SCAM ALERT:
PHONE SCAM ALERT: No legitimate law enforcement or
governmental agency will ever ask you over the phone to provide credit card
information or to ever pay or wire money for the purposes of clearing up an
alleged criminal matter such as an outstanding warrant or for failing to appear
in court. These requests or inquiries may come from someone purporting to
be a member of your local law enforcement agency using a valid name and phone
number, but this is a common scam that takes place across the country.
Please do not provide personal identifying or financial information if you get
a call of this type, but should you be victimized and suffer a loss, contact
the Darien Police Department at 203-662-5300.
