Attempted Theft/Fraud - 400 block of E. Lancaster Av.
On Monday, 6/14/2021, a resident of the 400 block of E. Lancaster Av. reports receiving a phone call from someone reporting to be from Homeland Security, threatening to have the subject's partner arrested. The caller stated the victim's wife's Visa was not properly completed and unless payment was made in Apple Gift Cards, DHS would be arresting and deporting his wife. Fortunately the victim realized this was a scam before any money was paid.
