On January 27th, 2023, officers with the Casper Police Department responded to an apartment complex located in North Casper, regarding a suspicious call. It was reported several tenants received a written notification from management indicating it was time to schedule their annual pest repellent treatment.
The written notice is very elaborate and provides specific details to the process and time it will take to complete, asking tenants to call a listed number from the notice and make arrangements between a specific date range. The goal of this notice was to have the renters leave their apartments at specific time in order for the fraudsters to burglarize the unsecure apartment.
This information has been shared with our partnering agencies and we ask everyone to remain vigilant, and report any suspicious activity to the Casper Police Department. We encourage you to speak with your rental management if you receive something like this in the future to ensure its legitimacy.
