BG Police Warn Businesses About Gift Card Scam

2/6/14 – 8:20 A.M.

Bowling Green Police are warning area businesses of a gift card scam. The Sentinel-Tribune reports police were told that a BG business was called by a man who identified himself as Don Richardson from InComm, a business that processes gift and phone card transactions. The man asked a clerk at the store to activate a certain type of card for a system test. When he was told they the store didn’t have that card, he asked the clerk to activate two Verizon cards. Once that was done the man hung up.

InComm has confirmed the man did not work for them. Police warn you should be careful about conducting business over the phone without verifying name and contact information.
