Police investigate local banks scam incidents

— The suspects are described as a white male, 6 feet tall, slim build with dark hair and dressed all in black, and well as a white male, approximately 50 years old, standing 5’10”, and weighing 180 lbs.

Albany and Colonie police reminded the community about following safety tips in regard to scams. Banks do not enlist the help of customers to investigate larcenies or bad employees and unsolicited phone calls should be viewed with skepticism, police said. Anyone receiving phone calls of a suspicious nature should never provide any money or information without verifying the source of the request. Sources of verification would be the organization involved, (in this case the banks), relatives, police, family attorney, etc.

Anyone with information is asked contact Albany Police at 462-8039 or Colonie police at 783-2744.
