Man impersonates police officer to get info on business

Read Time:3 Minute, 29 Second


Forest Park police say an unknown man was able to get sensitive financial information about a Madison Street business by passing himself off as a police officer.

On June 9, at 5:56 p.m., the business’ landline got a call from a number that came up as “unknown” on the caller ID. When an employee picked up the phone, a man identified himself as a Forest Park police officer, calling himself either “Officer Johnson” or “Officer Johanssen.” 

The man asked the employee to go somewhere private, told her that there was something fraudulent going on in the business, and that they must not accept cash, only credit cards, for the remainder of the day.
