The Maynard Police Department would like to remind our community to be vigilant of scams. Unfortunately, there has been an uptick in the area of a common scam where a fake attorney contacts a family member, often a senior citizen stating a child, or grandchild has been arrested or involved in an accident. These scammers will then request a large sum of money to bail, or secure release of this person.
If you are contacted by someone claiming to be an attorney or bail-bondsman please contact the Maynard Police Department, and we will assist you in sorting out the matter.
