none - Fraud



Vt. State Police - 9:10 pm Wed Dec 21st, 2016

On 12/20/2016 members of the State Police received a call from a citizen who was a victim of fraud. The victim informed police that a male, who identifies himself as William Keeley, called his residence stating he was legal aid for a friend of his.

Keeley stated the Victim's friend was in a car accident and was currently in police custody. Keely asked the victim to send over $1500.00 through Walmart in order to bail out the victim's friend. Once the money was sent, Keeley called back stating there were complications with the incident and more money is required in order to pay for bail. This is a phone scam being used to fraudulently gain money from individuals. If you receive a phone call with someone using a similar scenario, do not send them any money. As always be sure to confirm the identity of any individuals asking for money over the phone.
