VPD warns of scams

The Vincennes Police Department says it has received multiple reports lately of various money scams, so they are cautioning people, particularly the elderly, to be mindful. One of the most common occurs when a local resident receives a cashier’s check accompanied with directions on how to deposit or cash it; that, in turns, gives the scammer access to the victim’s bank account.

If you believe you may be the victim of a scam or have questions, contact VPD at 812-882-1630.
