Barnstable Police Warn of Scam to Steal Your Bank Info

No Barnstable employee will ever call and ask for your bank account info...

From the Barnstable Police Department:

Please be aware of a new telephone fraud scam in which the scam caller identifies themselves as a Town of Barnstable employee.

The caller asks if you would like a map of your property and asks for your bank account information to make the $1 payment. They then use that information to steal funds from your account.

No employees from the Town of Barnstable are calling people to provide this service, nor would they ask for bank account information. welcomes thoughtful comments and the varied opinions of our readers.
