Norwalk woman shares her experience of almost being scammed

A Norwalk woman tells News 12 she was almost scammed by two people who posed as police officers and told her she owned money for missing jury duty.
Shawna Daniels says she received a call on Saturday from two men who told her they worked for Norwalk police and that she was facing two fines.
"The first one was failure to appear and with that it was a fine of $1,350. The second one was contempt of court and I owned a fine of $1,250," says Daniels.
They provided her with their names, which matched the names of two current officers.
Daniels says she believed the call was legitimate because the pair brought up her kids, even though Daniels did not mention them during their conversation.
"At that point I'm really like, 'Oh my goodness, they have my information. This is for real and I do have children,'" says Daniels.
Daniels stayed on the phone with the duo as she went to the bank to withdraw the money.
She then walked into police headquarters and remained on the line with them.
They were unaware Daniels was planning to speak with the police.
Daniels says she wants people to be aware when dealing with potential scam calls.
"If you're not sure, go to your local police station. Don't fall victim, they just want your money and to make your life miserable," says Daniels.
Daniels says she will now think twice before she picks up another phone call.
Norwalk police say while these scams may sound sound credible, police will not ask people to send them money.
All transactions with police will take place in person at the department.
Police say if you receive a phone call from someone claiming that a family member or friend has been arrested and you must send money any other way other than in person, the call is a scam.
Bail bond money is only accepted in person.
