SCAM ALERT: Fake Representatives Asking for Information and Payments
The San Mateo County Sheriff's Office - Millbrae Police Bureau wants to alert the public about recent scams via phone and in person. The Millbrae Police Bureau has been made aware of ongoing scams where the suspect pretends to be from PG&E demanding payment via a Greendot card, various solar scams, and the most recent one, where the suspect claims to be from the Census Bureau asking for sensitive information or money.
Trust your instincts on these and do not give out any payments or personal information. If what you are hearing does not sound or feel right, simply hang up the phone, or disengage from the person talking to you. Then call 9-1-1 and notify law enforcement. The Millbrae Police Bureau wants to know what's going on and where. Thank you for your help in stopping these scams.
