State Patrol scam involves calls asking for money

GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - The State Patrol is warning Wisconsinites of yet another scam. 

In this one, a caller claims to be a sergeant from the State Patrol's Green Bay office, and asks for $900 to resolve a car crash involving a relative of the person who was called.

The fake sergeant says the money needs to be wired right away, to repair damages so the other driver does not press charges. 

Patrol Major Brian Rahn says his office would never call somebody to ask for money -- and if you get such a call, you're asked to call the State Patrol's Northeast Regional Post in Fond du Lac.

They say the scam appears to originate in Montreal Canada.
