Scams & Other Warnings

Failure to appear at court/Medical professionals

Date posted: August 1, 2023

The actors in this scam are identifying themselves as Pittsburgh Police officers and are calling Physician Assistants, and possibly other medical personnel, and informing them that they were supposed to appear at court for a hearing. The actors then state that the medical personnel will be arrested if they do not pay cash as a civil fine for missing the hearing. The actors’ phone number is altered to appear to be from the Pittsburgh Police Dept. Zone 1 and they inform the medical personnel to take the cash to the parking lot of the Pittsburgh Police Dept. Zone 1 building.

This is a scam, and the Pittsburgh Police Dept. has been notified. If you receive a phone call like this, please hang up the phone and do not provide any information. If you have any additional questions, please call 911 and request a phone call from the Mt. Lebanon Police Department.
