Springfield Police Warn About Possible Scam


Springfield police are putting out a warning about a possible scam that appears to play off the excitement over the forthcoming Hy-Vee store on South MacArthur.

 

Authorities say the incident started a couple of days ago, when a local woman received a call from a female claiming to be conducting a survey for the planned supermarket.  The next day, the intended target got a follow-up call from a male who called himself "Derek," who said the woman had won some in-store coupons.  He then said he needed to deliver the coupons to her in person.

 

Hy-Vee was notified of the incident and contacted police.  The company says it is not conducting any surveys in the Springfield market.  Police advise residents never to give out personal info over the phone, and to report suspicious solicitations.
