SUFFERN PD ISSUES SCAM ALERT
A Suffern resident called the police department to report that she received a call at her home from an unknown person who stated that he was involved in a car accident with the woman’s husband. The caller further stated that he was a fugitive and that he was holding her husband at gunpoint and wanted her to Western Union money to him for his safe release. The woman was obviously very upset and the story got more interesting when another family member received the same call which made it seem credible. Fortunately, the husband just happened to call the wife at the same time and when asked about his well-being and the current situation, he stated he was fine and at work and was unaware what his wife was referring to. The caller had the phone numbers of a few family members.
