(Nolensville, TN) In nearby Nolensville, Tennessee, just outside of Rutherford County, police have been warning residents about a person going door-to-door in an attempt to involve residents in a phone scam. The trickery involves a lost or stolen cellphone.
Most recently on Sunday, an individual holding an iPad knocked on the door of a Nolensville resident. The subject then said his cellphone was missing and pinging to their home. The man was bold enough to ask for the potential victims wi-fi password and to come into their home. That potential victim, armed with a baseball bat, did not follow along with the suspect’s request.
If anyone comes to your home and asks for your wi-fi password or asks to enter your home, say no. Better yet, don’t answer the door if you’re not expecting guests. Afterall, it’s your home and your property – you get to decide who comes into your space. If you get such a visitor, call the police or your local sheriff’s office ASAP.
As always, for emergency assistance dial 9-1-1. Additional phone numbers below.
