National Grid Scam

 
 
NATIONAL GRID WARNS NEW ENGLAND CUSTOMERS
OF ON-GOING PAYMENT SCAM
May 9, 2014
 
Good afternoon,
The attached press release details a utility billing scam that is once again targeting National Grid customers in New England.  These utility bill scammers are demanding immediate payment for electric bill balances, which customers might not even owe.  The fraudulent callers are claiming to be from National Grid and threatening customers with immediate service shut-off unless they provide credit card or bank account information that can be used to access the accounts.
National Grid has been doing public outreach to raise public awareness about this scam.  You may have even heard us on the radio instructing customers not to give the caller any information and to ask them to verify the last 5 digits of the billing account. 
Since many residents look to their municipalities for guidance on these matters,  we are sending this to you to provide you information, phone numbers and to post on the town’s website if possible.
 
Thank you for your continued partnership!
National Grid Community & Customer Management Team / South MA

Stolen and Counterfeit Credit Cards WVPO

Three Arrested for Stolen and Counterfeit Credit Cards and ID’s at the Wrentham Village Outlets

On December 30th, 2013, around 1:00PM, the Wrentham Police responded to the Burberry store at the Wrentham Village Premium Outlets.  Store employees were reporting three individuals inside the store attempting to make a purchase valued at more than $8000.00 with stolen or counterfeit credit cards and identifications.
Officer Robert O’Connell arrived to the scene first and witnessed the transaction taking place.  When he confronted two of the suspects, they fled from the store on foot to a rented 2013 Mercedes E350, parked nearby.  Officer Jon Coliflores and Sgt. James Barrett assisted Officer O’Connell in apprehending the three suspects before they were able to escape.
A subsequent investigation, including suspect interviews and several search warrants, revealed the three had spent thousands of dollars throughout Massachusetts, specifically Newbury Street in Boston, using stolen or counterfeit credit and debit cards and id’s.
The investigation is ongoing with the assistance of the United States Secret Service, but it appears these three suspects may be involved in similar crimes in other eastern states.
The three arrested are Justin Worthington, 24 years old from Oxon Hill, Maryland; Alexus Jackson, 20 years old from parts unknown and Christian Johnson, 23 years old from Landover, Maryland.

All three were held on $10,000.00 cash bail until court on the following day where they were arraigned.  Johnson is being held on a felony warrant for carjacking out of Prince George’s County, Maryland.

Metro LEC Announces Award

National AMBER Alert Awareness Day, January 13th, 2014, is set aside and memorialized in honor of Amber Hagerman and the establishment of a national AMBER Alert Program by the U.S. Department of Justice.  This is an appropriate time to notify the public of an important achievement by the Metropolitan Law Enforcement Council (Metro LEC).  Metro LEC is a consortium of cities, towns and sheriff departments from Massachusetts with the goal of sharing resources among its member agencies in order to provide the best possible police services to the community.

On July 23rd and 24th, 2013, Metro LEC conducted a “mock” child abduction drill in the Town of Norwood.  Officers from member agencies of the Metro LEC organization mobilized and responded to Norwood to investigate a report of a missing child.  Assessors from the AMBER Program evaluated the Metro LEC Child Abduction Response Team (Metro CART), a specialized unit within Metro LEC.   They assessed protocols and the effectiveness of the drill, to meet standards set forth by the U.S. Department of Justice.  After completion of the drill, Metro CART has received notification from the AMBER Program that we have successfully met these necessary standards and will become the 19th nationally certified CART team, and only the second northeastern state team to receive the honor.

On February 18th, 2014, Metro LEC will be presented an award by the Department of Justice for the national certification.  This award will be presented by Phil Keith, Program Director of the AMBER Alert Training and Technical Assistance Program.  More information will follow regarding the award ceremony.
