Fake calls claim to be with the "Senior Center"
The Quincy Police Department is trying to make the public aware of a scam that is currently going on.
We have received reports from elderly citizens that they have received phone calls from someone claiming to be from the “Senior Center” and telling people they are eligible for a free Life Line and $3000 in food coupons.
We are alerting the public that neither the Quincy Senior Center or Life Line are involved in this and it does appear to be a scam. In all instances the victims have hung up without giving any information. Life Line has indicated they do not do any “cold calling” of individuals and only make return phone calls when an inquiry has been made to them.
We would like to remind citizens to never give any information over the phone. Any questions please contact Detective Adam Gibson at 223-7904 ext 104.
