The Alexandria Police Department is warning residents about a scam that is targeting residents in this area.

It starts with a telephone call where residents are asked to wire money to a specific location. The scammer will pretend to be a relative, stating that he/she is in trouble and needs help.


Another scam involves a caller saying that he/she is with law enforcement and a relative is in jail and needs money in order to be released.
