Deerfield Police Department, Massachusetts: SCAM ALERT received a report that a resident was called from a 978 area code number. The person on the line was claiming to be from a law office and requested a small payment to avoid a large law suit. If it sounds fishy it is, if your going to get sued a phone conversation and wiring money to some far away land isn't going to make it go away. Please feel free to contact us anytime you are scammed we are happy to spread the word via social media. Many times there is not much we can do to find the source of the scam but any information may help.
