New 'Clearinghouse Merchandise Scam' Hits Monrovia

From Monrovia Police Department:

A new scam targeting the elderly has surfaced in Monrovia. Recently, a card was mailed to a Monrovia resident indicating the United Merchandise Clearinghouse had a parcel waiting for him and he was to call an “800” number in order to have the package sent to him. When the victim dialed the number, the person on the other end asked for a credit card number to pay for shipping so the package could be delivered to the resident. The suspects then have the victim’s name and credit card information to make fraudulent purchases. The suspects in this new scam appear to be targeting elderly victims. Please inform your loved ones and neighbors of this new scam, especially the elderly, so they don’t become a victim.
