EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -
The Marshall Police Department is warning the public regarding deceptive telephone calls. The Marshall Police Department is currently investigating several cases in which an individual has received a phone call from someone posing as emergency personnel.
According to police, the caller informs the person that a love one has been involved in an accident or that law enforcement personnel have a loved one stopped on the side of the road. The person receiving the call is asked to come to the local emergency room or to the site where the loved one is being detained. These calls can be a ploy to get you out of the residence so that they can burglarize the residence.
Marshall police want the public to know that there are several ways to defend yourself against this hoax. If you should receive a phone call from someone who informs you that law enforcement or hospital personnel need you to come to a certain location, you should ask the following questions:
(1) What agency do you work for?
(2) Where exactly do I need to come?
(3) Who exactly do you have detained?
Once you get this information and before leaving the residence, call that loved one to try and make contact. Also, call that agency's non-emergency number to see if they actually have an officer/deputy at that location.
If the caller advises you to come to the local emergency room, call that emergency room to see if they have that loved one in their facility.
