A couple from Georgia posed as Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department deputies in a telephone fraud scheme and scammed six people out of $16,000 in gift cards, the department said Monday.

Nicolas Brady Kennedy, 29, and Ashley Marie Walker, 28, both of Loganville, Georgia, made a series of phone calls mostly targeting the elderly in Northern Los Angeles County, Sheriff’s Chief Patrick Nelson said at a news conference. Full Article

I am amazed that these people were actually caught and used the same spoofing techniques used in my scamming case. i would really like to know how the police were able to track down these scammers. I hope they provide a report and send it out to other police departments. Seems their is something to be learned from the police in LA on how other departments can investigate these scams. Good job – for LA Police!

It must of been the gift cards got them located and if the cards was used at an ATM it takes pictures of the transacted and there are other recorded tracks. It could have been the police that was in assistance of sending the cards for purpose of a sting.

” i would really like to know how the police were able to track down these scammers”.

The piggies have eyes everywhere. Look up (satellites), look at your name on the internet, look in your grocery store (cams), look at your neighbors (security cams), look at the ATM, look at ignorant people, ie the USA, look at digital anything. The “police”, ie government see all.

@R M

The piggies don’t have satellites. No city, county, state, or Fed LE office have their own. They may have access to data, e.g. overhead Earth observations for MJ farms in the mtns, that might lead them to info from a sat bird which may be used to start an investigation, but they don’t own or operate any satellites. Spying on your own country from space, the USA specifically, is illegal. What data they can get from orbiting platforms is going to be limited if any from those who do own and op them without specific need.

What i wanna know is how could anyone fall for that scam for 1 sherrif or police would never call to tell you that you have a warrant plus to avoid the warrant is to pay money over the phone? In the form of gift cards? Wow. If a sheriff ever did that he’s breaking the law and besides officers dont care cuz if you have a warrant why would they call to give you heads up? Lol nope cuz if you have a warrant they will just come n get you

@Mike

Get into the mind of a scared person who had been victimized by one of these or is scared by the threat overall and you’ll know how they could fall. Until then, people are people and anything is possible, including not falling but fighting back.

I’ve never been physically threatened by. The police but i don’t want to be arrested for violating “civil commitment rule” and put in jail or worse prison, but i have had the sherrifs come out to my house while me and my 12 year old son home an playing ps4. They claim anonymous call came in and it said i. Fell of f the wagon and was doing crack, lol and asked if my son is home, i had them wait outside an got my son, i told them well haven’t touched drugs or alcohol since 1987, i actually laughed… Read more »
