Fraud

Incident Date

Address

South Carroll St.

Details

The MPD has taken several calls lately regarding similar fraud attempts. Residents are getting phone calls from a woman who speaks with an accent. She claims to be with the Madison Police Department, and is telling citizens that they need to take care of a summons or a ticket within 45 minutes, or a warrant will be issued for their arrest. In a couple of cases, victims have been told to call 713-357-6055 and ask for "Mr. Tom O'Brien." So far, those who've contacted the real MPD have recognized the calls as being bogus.
