BALTIMORE (WMAR) - Baltimore City Police need your help to find the person responsible for a scam targeting the elderly.
In these cases, police say a female caller contacts the victims and impersonates a city tax official. The suspect then tells the victims that a city official, in some cases a police officer or a sheriff, will come to their home to collect the outstanding tax payments.
Individuals who receive these types of calls should hang up immediately and contact police.
In at least one case, the victim was assaulted and robbed.
The white man pictured is the suspect that goes to the victims houses and proceeds to rob and in some cases, seriously assaults the victim.
Anyone with any information is asked to call the Special Investigation Section Check and Fraud Unit at 410-396-2400.
