Hammond Police Warn of Scammers

Share this post

Hammond Police report the first scam of spring... an elderly person duped into letting a fake public service worker into their home. Hammond Police Chief Brian Miller says it happened about a week ago. The victim was not harmed, but money was taken. Chief Miller is asking the elderly and any resident to not let people who show up on your doorstep claiming to be from a utility department into your home, and to call 911 if they want to enter. Miller also says keep an eye out for suspicious persons at grocery stores, banks, and financial institutions, as some of the city's previous victims have been followed from these businesses to their homes.
