JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Police responded to several calls from residents around the metro-Atlanta area on June 26 that they had received calls from a man claiming to be Johns Creek police officer.
One woman from Dallas, Georgia, said she received a call from a person claiming to be Lt. Nick Curry. The woman tried to call him back immediately, but got an automated answer telling her she had reached the Johns Creek Police Department with options to reach different departments. Each option led to a prompt to leave a message and your phone number.
The woman left a message and received a call back later that day from someone claiming to be Ed Densmore, the police chief. The caller claimed she had a failure to appear warrant from Johns Creek and requested she purchase prepaid cards to prevent police from coming to her home and arresting her, she told police.
After she gave the suspect the prepaid card numbers, she became suspicious and called the department directly.
