Saturday, March 19
Fraud: At 3:53 p.m., a resident advised police that he received a call from a youth hockey team soliciting donations. When the resident asked the caller for a callback number the caller became rude and refused to comply. Police advised the resident that this is most likely a scam and to not donate any funds as requested.
Fraud: At 6:27 p.m., a resident advised that a youth hockey league called and requested she donate money. The hockey league requested that she leave a deposit-only check in an envelope on her door. Police contacted the Nashua Police Department, where the Youth Hockey League is based. Normally, according to Nashua Police, the YHL notifies Nashua Police when they were looking for donations and as of now, they have not notified Nashua Police. Police advised the resident this is most likely a scam and to call police if any suspicious activity arises.
