Greenville police warn of scam
Greenville police are warning people of a scam targeting older people. Officers were alerted after a couple approached a victim and said they were with Greenville Utilities.
The second incident was similar except that the couple claimed to work for the City of Greenville and were trying to identify tree branches that needed to be trimmed, police say.
The woman was described as Caucasian with a small build, 5 foot 4 inches tall. She had blonde hair, blue eyes and appeared to be in her late 20s or early 30s.
Anyone with information should call Pitt-Greenville Crime Stoppers at 252-758-7777.
