MPD warns of scam attempt at business

Manchester Police Department received a report of a SCAM attempt at a local business.

According to MPD, this potential scammer attempted to pay for services but their card was denied. At this point, the individual appeared to be on the phone with his credit card company. He told the employee at the business that his credit card company would assist them in bypassing his credit card limit and attempted to persuade the employee to change the settings on the machine.

It was later determined that this would have compromised the machine and given access to recent purchases if the employee would have listened to the scammer. Manchester Police Department is asking all businesses to be aware of this activity.
