Coconut Creek Police Department Scam Alert

Being asked to deposit money in a Bitcoin account is a sure sign it's a scam and it's the foundation of this Coconut Creek Police Department Scam Alert. A Coconut Creek man in his 70s unfortunately fell for this one last week. He thought he was on his bank's website, but he wasn't. He was actually on a phony site set up by the scammers and that's how they hooked him and reeled him in. They convinced him to call a "representative" who told him there were problems with his bank account that only a deposit into one of their Bitcoin accounts could fix. No bank would ever ask you to do anything like that to solve any problems. If you're ever asked to do anything like that, don't because it's a scam. All the banks also have secure websites. You can tell a website is secure by the little lock symbol to the left of the web address.
