The Green Dot Money Card scam has made its way to Tallahassee. Police are investigating a new kind of scam that’s hard to trace using reloadable debit cards.
In just one day, at least ten people called to complain to the Tallahassee Police Department about a male lieutenant, who said he had a warrant for their arrest. The problem, TPD Spokesman David Northway says, is no sworn officers are known to have made such a call. And he adds they certainly wouldn’t tell people they could avoid arrest if they purchase a Green Dot Money Card.
