A new type of scam call is circulating in the area. Residents are receiving calls from individuals claiming to represent the Police Officers Support Association.
The callers are extremely forceful and use pressure sales techniques to get a donation. If you agree to donate, they will ask for your credit card information or ask you to purchase gift cards and provide the numbers over the phone. If you refuse to give your credit card number, they will send a bill in the mail stating you will be arrested if you do not pay. Do not provide any information over the phone.
At this time, no agency in the surrounding area is making calls for donations. If you receive a call from any organization that you feel is questionable, contact the Fair Oaks Ranch Police Department 210-698-0990 and ask to speak with an officer.
