Fraud Alert!!


From the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office

Obituary Scheme - Indiana State Police are investigating a scheme that seems to be run by individuals that are targeting senior citizens.  The suspects are using the obituaries to find and target recently widowed seniors.  They are then calling these individuals and telling them they need credit card information to prevent undetected fraud.  Once the perpetrator successfully obtains the credit card information they use it to buy expensive lawnmowers. Please be assertive and ask questions!
