Georgetown Police Warning of Phone Scam


Georgetown Police are Investigating an attempted fraud where the participants identified themselves as local government officials.  Georgetown Police were contacted Wednesday after a resident received several calls from someone identifying themselves as a Georgetown Police Officer and claimed the victim had an active warrant and that payment had to be made immediately or the victim would be arrested.  Then the victim received a phone call from a woman claiming to be a lawyer with “US Legal Support” and she would handle the payment transaction. To add validity in their scam, the first caller cloned the Georgetown Police Department’s phone number. (of 302-856-6613)  Georgetown Police remind you that any request for payment made by someone identifying as a police officer is fraudulent.
