A 45-year-old Westcross Road resident reported an attempted fraud on Oct. 17 at 1:17 p.m.

According to the report, the complainant was contacted on Oct. 12 by a person who claimed to work for the Connecticut State Treasury Department. The person told the complainant he had unclaimed property, and could reclaim the land for a 10 percent finder's fee. Police said the complainant thought it could be a scam and asked for the person's business number. The person only gave him his cell phone number claiming he worked out of his car.

A few days later, the complainant received a letter from the same individual requesting personal information, including his Social Security number.

After investigation, police confirmed the complainant's suspicions of the scam. The name that was given to the complainant was a fake name and no one at the Connecticut State Treasury Department was involved.
