Mashpee Police Department Tip of the Month


There continues to be multiple scams circulating that are meant to scare and confuse you into giving out personal information.

  • Remember you don’t have to answer the telephone.
  • If you don’t recognize a telephone number, don’t answer it.
  • If you do answer, NEVER give out your personal information.
  • Don’t open emails from senders you DO NOT know.
  • Always confirm with a utility company (or other) by contacting the number on your bill if there is a question of cancellation or past due funds.

Below are some helpful numbers:
Attorney General’s Office at 617-727-8400 to notify them of a scam.
Federal Trade Commission at 877 382 4357 to file ID theft report

As always please do not hesitate to contact the Mashpee Police Department with any questions or concerns regarding a call.

Any questions please contact Special Officer and Advocate Tara Carline at 508-539-1480 ext 7253
