Sex Offender Scam...
State Police have issued an alert about a scam that targets sex offenders.
As part of the scam, Skook News reports that a registered sex offender receives a telephone call from an individual claiming to be a law enforcement official.
The caller advises that he or she is not in compliance with their registration requirements, and sometimes claims to hold a warrant for the offender’s arrest.
The caller claims that the issue can be resolved if the registered sex offender obtains some form of cash card and or arranges a money transfer.
If a registered sex offender receives this type of call and has any question regarding their compliance status, they should contact the Pennsylvania State Police, Megan’s Law Section.
