Medford police scams

MPD SYSTEMMedford, Ore., — Medford Police have seen it before, and are seeing it again.

A tax fraud scam targeting local residents.

Apparently people are receiving calls from someone claiming to be a “Medford Police Detective” investigating tax fraud.

They’re told if the they don’t pay – they will get arrested.

Lieutenant Kerry Curtis says MPD would never do that.

“We work so hard as a police department to develop trust in our community and when somebody reports to be us and people end up losing money, that can certainly give us a bad look”

Curtis advises people to always report these incoming calls to police.
