Burlington police have posted a warning about a scam going around right now. It is actually the old trick of someone claiming to be a police officer, demanding you send him or her a payment or give your social security number. They say it is about a court case you did not know you were involved in, but it is vital you send money or identify yourself with your social security number so they can determine if they have the right person. The best advice: hang up. No police officer anywhere in the known universe is going to demand you send them money or give them your social security number.
