Kaua`i Police Warn Public to Remain Vigilant for Scams

LIHU`E, KAUA`I (Ben Caxton) — Due to recent scam alerts, the Kaua’i Police Department is reminding residents and businesses to be aware of potential scams, especially during the upcoming holiday season. A recent report was made of a suspicious person knocking on a resident’s door and impersonating someone from the Kaua’i Fire Department’s Prevention Bureau. The man claimed to be distributing fire prevention kits but did not have any on-hand. While he did not ask for money at the time, KFD has confirmed that it did not sanction the distribution of any fire kits. Chief Todd G. Raybuck says they have no idea what the man’s motive was adding that he did not leave a business card and was not wearing a uniform or any official logos – a strong indicator of a scam. Scams can become more frequent during this time of year when many legitimate organizations participate in fundraising events for charity, so it can be tempting to participate.
