The Carmel Police Department is cautioning residents that a post on a social media group page warning of an abductor in the area is in fact a scam. Carmel Police were sent the post from a tag sale page over concerns that there might be a predator in the area. Police say that particular post is a scam, adding that the poster is from Zimbabwe. The post was only their second on the local page, they were a member of the group for only one day, and they hadn't posted anything else in months. Police say this could be a phishing scam. Carmel Police say they do keep an eye for legitimate threats like this, but have a degree of certainty that this one is bogus. Residents were asked not to engage with the post and anyone with continuing concerns should reach out to their local police agency.
