Be aware of scam

On Monday 3/11/2013 a resident contacted police in reference to a suspicious phone call he received.  A male subject on the phone told the resident that the resident’s brother was involved in a motor vehicle crash which injured the caller’s family member.  The caller told the resident that he would need to bring money to the caller or they would shoot his brother.  Similar phone calls have been made in other areas of York.  Police would like to remind everyone to be very cautious of phone scams.  If you have any doubt if a phone call is legitimate please contact the police for guidance.
