Pound Ridge Police Investigate Fraud Complaints

POUND RIDGE, N.Y. – Pound Ridge police investigated two complaints of possible fraud this week.

On Thursday, Feb. 9, a Salem Road resident told police she received a call telling her that her daughter had been arrested and needed money wired to her. No money was transferred and police determined it was an attempted scam.

Another attempted phone scam was reported to police by an Autumn Ridge resident on the same day. The resident received a recorded message asking if they were interested in having the interest rate on their credit cards lowered. The message prompted them to speak to an operator to reveal credit card information. No information was given.
