PHISHING SCAM: Officers were contacted at the police department lobby about a phishing scam. The reporting party told officers she received an email from her bank in her spam folder. The reporting party clicked the link in the email and gave information like her debit card number, social security number and answers to security questions. Later, she discovered an online banking transfer out of her account that she did not authorize. The funds were traced to Russia. The old accounts were closed and new ones were opened.
