Waynesboro Police Log
The Waynesboro Police Department has issued a warning about a scam in which someone is reportedly going door to door trying to gather residents’ personal information.
Police said the individual tells residents they are with the Justice Department and doing a survey about crime in the community.
They then ask for information such as name, date of birth and how many people live in the household. They claim the information is being collected to see how Waynesboro ranks on the scale of the crime.
Police released the scam warning this week, advising residents to refuse to provide personal information to strangers claiming to be with the Justice Department or any other agency. Instead, call Waynesboro Police Department at 717-762-2131.
