Middletown Police asks everyone -- particularly our elderly population -- to use common sense and caution when anyone asks for money, personal information, passwords and the like.
MIDDLETOWN -- If the caller or online offer sounds too good -- or bad -- to be true, it probably is. Use common sense and caution when interacting others asking for money, personal information, passwords and the like. The Middletown Police reports a local resident would have been out $15,000 if it wasn't for the actions of a quick-thinking clerk as part of one recent scam.
