CRIME NOTICES

SCAM AND FRAUD ALERTS

Jury Arrest Warrant Scam

This notification is to advise residents of a scam that is being perpetrated across the U.S. The scam involves individuals contacting citizens telephonically and advising them that they missed a scheduled jury duty and that a judge has issued an arrest warrant for them. Recently, in Kendall County, IL the caller identified himself as a law enforcement officer from the "Federal Warrant Division." The​ caller then verbally instructs the victim that they can avoid an arrest, if they pay a fine. The caller then instructs the victim to obtain what's known as a "Money-Pack", which is a pre-paid credit card. "Money-Pack" credit cards are found at retail establishments. Once the "Money-Pack" is obtained the victim calls the individual back reads off the numbers from the Money-Pack and the transaction is settled. Please do not fall for this PHONE-SCAM and immediately contact the Indian Head Park Police Department to report this activity. Please click here to read the Security Information Bulletin from the IL Supreme Court.

Phone Scam

The Village of Indian Head Park Police Department has had two complaints of a telephone phone scam and theft whereby, an unknown female caller with an Indian accent, identified herself as an Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Criminal Investigation Division Agent and told the victim that there was an arrest warrant issued for her arrest unless she obtained U.S Currency and paid the IRS Agent. In the first incident, the victim obtained U.S. Currency and purchased a “Money-Pack” and a money transfer was completed resulting in a theft.  This case is being conducted jointly with the IRS Criminal Investigation Division Chicago Field Office and the Indian Head Park Police Department. The second incident occurred on July 8th, when a female with Indian accent called a victim saying she was an IRS Agent and asked victim to wire transfer her $689.00 in U.S. currency or the Cook County Sheriff’s Police would be arresting her within the hour.  Victim promptly notified the police department whereby a report was generated.

***PLEASE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY PHONE CALLS OR GIVE OUT ANY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION i.e., SSN #, DATE OF BIRTH etc.,  FROM ANYONE POSING AS A IRS SPECIAL AGENT OR ANY LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER/AGENCY INDICATING THAT AN ARREST WARRANT HAS BEEN ISSUED AND OBTAIN MONEY OR YOU WILL BE ARRESTED. THIS IS A FRAUD. PLEASE REPORT ANY SUCH INCIDENTS TO THE INDIAN HEAD PARK POLICE DEPARTMENT IMMEDIATELY.

Tax Season Scam

Residents are reminded that the IRS will NEVER contact you by phone. It is ALWAYS via the US mail. If someone contacts you by phone without you initiating the conversation, it is probably a scam.
