COVID-19 Cyber Scams

We have not had any reported Coronavirus (COVID-19) cyber scams but we wanted to make people aware that scammers will use every event to take your money.

Please remain vigilant and take the following precautions as recommended by the US Cybersecurity and Infrastrucutre Agency (CISA):

  • Avoid clicking on links in unsolicited emails and be wary of email attachments. See Using Caution with Email Attachments and Avoiding Social Engineering and Phishing Scams for more information.
  • Use trusted sources—such as legitimate, government websites—for up-to-date, fact-based information about COVID-19.
  • Do not reveal personal or financial information in email, and do not respond to email solicitations for this information.
  • Verify a charity’s authenticity before making donations. Review the Federal Trade Commission’s page on Charity Scams for more information.

As always, if they ask for a GIFT CARD it’s a SCAM.

 

Narcotics Investigation in the Wakefield Subdivision

On February 22nd at approximately 4:22 PM our dispatch center received a call about several subjects leaving a house in the Wakefield subdivision.  One of the subjects was in possession of a shotgun. A woman ran from the house screaming at the subjects. The subjects left in a vehicle and were stopped by SHPD officers on Main St. A preliminary investigation revealed that at least some of the subjects in the vehicle were at the house to buy illegal drugs. An altercation occurred during the transaction which resulted in one of the subjects taking the seller’s drugs and shotgun. Two of the subjects in the vehicle are facing charges. More charges are possible as the investigation is on going.

Shoplifting from The Home Depot

 

The persons pictured are suspected of numerous thefts from several Home Depot stores (beginning in November of 2019) in middle Tennessee, including the one in Spring Hill.  The subjects are wanted for questioning concerning theft of DeWalt power tools at the Spring Hill store.   On January 22nd, two subjects entered the Spring Hill Home Depot store, loaded up a shopping cart of power tools and pushed them out without paying.   If you can identify these persons, please email Det. Josh Weber at jweber@springhilltn.org or submit an anonymous tip here.

Scam Alert

We received information that someone is calling people and claiming to be with a cable company provider asking people if they will be home on a certain date.  The person is claiming that there will be an internet outage.  This is a scam.  Do not give this person any person information or let them remote into your computer.  Do not let them know you will not be at home.

On a side note, we are still getting reports of people buying gift cards for scammers.  If a person that you don’t know asks for a gift card, it’s a scam.  There are many variations of this scam but the end result is you giving them the gift card and PIN.
