Cell Phone Scam
APD received two reports of this scam here locally today. It’s a virus that locks your mobile phone and shows an urgent “police alert” claiming your phone has been locked due to illegal activities. The scam then demands that you pay a fine in order to unlock your device. In the cases reported today, the citizens were told they need to purchase Walmart or Money Mart gift cards in order to unlock their device. Please be aware that this is a scam and do not to proceed with any of the instructions. Contact your phone maker to determine how to remove the virus and report the scam to police.
