[ARCHIVED] Warning - Package Return Scams on the Rise

scam alert

Allen Police are warning all residents of package return scams. If you did not initiate the return, or someone who did - it is most likely a scam.

As the holiday shopping season comes to a close, package delivery and return scams start. 

An example of what one Allen resident found on their door step appears to be a package pick up slip. The scammers want you to call in an effort to get your financial information (credit or debit). There have also been Amazon clone emails seeking the same information for possible return of packages. 

Please remember if you did not start the inquiry, it is most likely a scam. You can sign up to receive fraud and crime alerts like these at Allen's Tip411.

Stay alert and report any possible fraud to the Allen Police Department.
