After Juneau man loses $3K, police warn of phone scam

Post: # 638Post Hans Neesantoes »

A Juneau man fell for a phone scam last week, and authorities don’t want others to fall into the same trap.

A 72-year-old man reveived a call Friday from someone claiming to be a representative from the Juneau Police Department, according to a JPD release. The caller said the man needed to pay $3,000 for outstanding warrants for his arrest. The 72-year-old then bought gift cards from a retail store and provided the information to the caller.
