The Aberdeen Police Department has received two fraud complaints that are also occurring throughout the county, state and country.
The first complaint involved a fraudulent letter from the IRS requesting confidential information including copies of the victims tax return and social security number.
It appears that this incident is part of the Seattle Archdioceses fraud where past employees and volunteers of organizations within the Seattle Archdiocese are apparent victims of a tax refund scheme.
The second report involved the GH PUD fraud where a person calls and states they are from the PUD. The suspect tells the victim that their current bill is overdue and they must make a payment now or risk having the service disconnected immediately.
The suspect told the victim that they could not pay with cash or a credit card as that would take 24 hours to process. The victim was told to purchase Greendot Moneypaks. The victim was told to provide the numbers on the card by the suspect.
The Aberdeen Police Department advises to never provide anyone with unsolicited requests for confidential information. If a person is ever in doubt they may call their local police department or check for current fraud and identity schemes at the Federal Trade Commission website which is, http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/scam-alerts
