Counterfeit Money Popping Up In East Nashville Businesses

An East Nashville business has received two counterfeit $100 bills in the last three weeks. The Secret Service said in February that scammers are now removing the ink from real money to print new amounts on the bills. Agents said it can feel real and the counterfeit detector pens likely won’t detect it. Pohnert said they got a $100 bill over the weekend, tested it with a counterfeit detector pen and it appeared to be legit, until he went to the bank to deposit it.


Metro Police Flooded With Calls, Warn Of ‘All Too Common’ Spoofing Scam

The Metro Nashville Police Department said they have received dozens of calls Monday from victims of a spoofing scam. Officers called the scam “all too common.” Victims  called  to report someone from the number told them a friend or family member had been arrested and needed money to get out of jail. A warning from Metro police. “Important reminder, no one from the MNPD will ever call you and demand money or personal information,”

You may not be able to tell right away if an incoming call is spoofed. Be extremely careful about responding to any request for personal identifying information.

-Don’t answer calls from unknown numbers. If you answer such a call, hang up immediately.

-Never give out personal information such as account numbers, Social Security numbers, mother’s maiden names, passwords or other identifying information in response to unexpected calls or if you are at all suspicious.

-If you get an inquiry from someone who says they represent a company or a government agency, hang up and call the phone number on your account statement, in the phone book, or on the company’s or government agency’s website to verify the authenticity of the request. You will usually get a written statement in the mail before you get a phone call from a legitimate source, particularly if the caller is asking for a payment.

-Talk to your phone company about call blocking tools they may have and check into apps that you can download to your mobile device to block unwanted calls. Information on available robocall blocking tools is available at fcc.gov/robocalls.
