Fond du Lac PD Works Hard To Keep People Informed On Scams

The City of Fond du Lac Police Department is working to keep people informed about the most reported scams to their department.  

Officer Steve Olson tells KFIZ News that while computer-based email or phishing scams aren’t anything new, scammers are putting a lot of work into them to make them seem legitimate.  

“Anyone that does online banking or shops online, it actually will have the correct logos of a legitimate place that you have been on the website and that you’re familiar with. All of those email/phishing scams require you to do something for them. It is generally clicking on a link, opening an attachment, or worse-case scenario, entering some personal information.”

Olson says because those scam emails have become so convincing, it’s especially important to pay attention to what is being sent to you, so you don’t fall victim to one of these scams.
