TPD-Logo police

TAYLOR, Texas – On Thursday, January 23rd, a Williamson County resident received a telephone call from a suspect claiming to be a Taylor Police Officer. The suspect stated there was suspicious activity involving the resident’s social security number, and that an investigation into money laundering had been initiated. The suspect then stated the resident needed to withdraw cash and meet them with the money, their bank card, and their driver’s license at a location in Austin. The resident called the Taylor Police Department and confirmed that this call was a scam.  

The Taylor Police Department will never call anyone and demand money as a result of an investigation. Anyone solicited into suspicious activity should do what this resident did, and call the Taylor Police Department to report it immediately.
