fsaThe Lindale Police Department is notifying the community of a recent scam.

Police advise that citizens be aware and vigilant of their surroundings and when things appear to be odd. The pictures posted are of a man who solicited money using deception. The scam started when a person called a business posing as a customer requesting help and that someone the customer knew would be at the business shortly. They were asking for money in order to get their broke down car towed away. The caller gave little information but fed off information given to him by the unsuspecting victim.

Police say that by giving money, you are doing so willingly and it eventually puts a person in a financial bind. 

Anyone with any informatuon about the scam are urged to contact Police.
