INCIDENTS OF INTEREST

Attempted Fraud (114 W. Sea Hawk Drive)

A suspect impersonating a Duck Resident called another resident and attempted to sell a security system to them. The person who received the call determined that the caller was not who they claimed to be and terminated the call.  This case remains under investigation.

 

Fraud (122 Mallard Drive)

Resident returned home to find a large box on their porch. The box contained a bidet.  After confirming that no one in the home ordered the item it was discovered that the item was fraudulently purchased on the victim’s credit card, along with several other items.  The bidet was returned and the other orders were cancelled.  It was determined that the orders were placed from a location outside of the United States.
