Investigation by the Detective Bureau has discovered that the incidents are fraudulent; with untraceable phones and mass emails utilized in the scheme. Residents are reminded to not fall prey to these scams and to verify the safety of their relative by simply contacting them. Questions can be directed to the Madison Police Department at 973-593-3000 or Detective Lieutenant Dennis Lam at 973-593-3012.
