MPD Warns of Scams Targeting Senior Citizens

Scams targeting senior citizens are becoming more prevalent and the Morristown Police Department is receiving more reports.  The scams include, but are not limited to sweepstakes scams, grandparent scams, dating website scams, internet/computer scams and email/phishing scams.

The Morristown Police Department has printed a flyer about details of what these scams are and what scammers are asking for.  Flyers have been distributed to local businesses, banks, pawn shops, cash advance businesses and payment services. They can also be found in the foyer at the City Center, just inside the parking garage or view digitally HERE.  Any organizations and community groups that would like to have flyers to help spread the word can contact Lieutenant Billy Gulley at (423) 318-1552.
