Man posing as Germantown police officer

A man posing as a Germantown Police Officer has recently placed calls to Germantown residents claiming that the resident received a red light enforcement ticket and has missed a court date. The caller then claims that a warrant has been issued and that in order to have the warrant rescinded, the resident must purchase a pre-paid money card and provide the card number so that the ticket can be paid. The caller has threatened residents with arrest if they do not comply.
The Germantown Police Department does not contact subjects with warrants asking them to forward money via phone. Anyone receiving a similar call is asked to contact the Germantown Police Department at (901) 757-7338.
