NORFOLK, Neb. (KCAU) — Police in Norfolk are warning city businesses of a scam targeting them, asking employees to make an electronic transfer.

In a Tuesday release, the police said that scammers are calling businesses and asking employees that the business’ cash needs to be sent via electronic transfer. The scammers say they are being instructed by the business owner or manager to do so, adding that the money is for a fine or order of supplies.

The scammer will also try to make it seem as if the cash transfer is urgent.

The police are asking to treat such calls with scepticism and to verify the information.

Anyone who feels they may have been victim to such a scam is asked to call their local law enforcement.
