Mount Pleasant Police warn of impersonator scam
MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCSC) - Police in Mount Pleasant are warning the public not to fall for a scheme involving a caller who claims to work for the agency.
Police say they learned Wednesday that someone received calls from a man claiming to be a Mount Pleasant police officer. The man claimed there was an arrest warrant for the would-be victim because someone was using their name for money laundering.
“This is a scam, and we want to remind and encourage our citizens to never give their personal information over the phone or send payments,” Sgt. Ashley Croy said.
Mount Pleasant Police does not conduct business in this manner nor do their officers accept money, Croy said.
Anyone who has received a similar call and has given a caller personal information should contact Mount Plesant Police at 843-884-4176 to file a police report.
