The Douglass Township Police took a report of an attempted Fraud/Email scam that occurred on 09 December 2020. The victim received an email claiming to be from Nortons AntiVirus advising that his subscription through Xfinity was going to expire soon. The email also claimed that his bank account was charged $350. A phone number was listed in the email to dispute the charges. The victim called the number and eventually let the person into his computer where he had access to his bank account and other personal information. The victim noticing something wasn't right, immediately shut down the computer and disconnected. No monies were actually removed and the victim was able to close the accounts and reopen new ones.
