Framingham Police Warn of Money Transfer Scam
FRAMINGHAM – Framingham Police are reminding residents that law enforcement “will never ask” individuals to transfer money, said Framingham Police spokesperson Lt. Rachel Mickens.
Framingham Police are investigating a telephone scam claiming that an Amazon account was compromised, said Lt. Mickens.
The victim “received a call from someone posing as a US Marshall who could help and requested money be deposited in off shore accounts. This resulted in thousands of dollars being transferred,” explained the Framingham Police spokesperson.
“Law enforcement will never ask you to transfer funds in this manner. Do not send money or give out personal information to someone who calls you. Hang up and contact the entity directly to find out if there is an issue, or reach out to the police department and ask for assistance,” said Lt. Mickens.
