Mount Pleasant Police Warn About Caller Claiming to Be Detective

Mount Pleasant police are warning people about a scam with someone pretending to be one of their detectives.

The department says the scammer calls and uses a current Mount Pleasant detective’s name and credentials, then threatens to arrest the potential victim if they don’t pay them.

The scammer avoids meeting in person, and will request payment through Green Dot, or some other form of untraceable money transaction.

Mount Pleasant police say they will never ask for money.

They are investigating.

They say if you get a call from someone claiming to be a Mount Pleasant detective or officer, call Isabella County Central Dispatch to make sure it’s legitimate.
