Pair scams woman by posing as police

Jul 27, 2010 8:30:00 AM - thestate.com
A man and woman posing as police officers scammed a Forest Acres woman and police are warning others not to fall for the fraud.

The woman said the man, a black male between 35 and 40 years old and dressed in an authentic looking uniform and 30- to 35-year-old woman in plain clothes came to her house claiming to be police officers with knowledge of a 2009 case the victim had been involved with.

The pair said the woman could help them arrest a bank employee who was a suspect in the case by accompanying them to two bank branches and removing money from her account.

Anyone with knowledge of this scam can leave tips using the Crime Stoppers contact methods above.
