Warning of a new scam!! We are seeing a new scam involving credit/debit cards that we would like to share. A subject calls customers on behalf of a bank and advises that their credit/debit cards have been compromised. The subject has specific information about a recent deposit and purchase made on the account. The subject then advises the customer that the bank needs to collect the cards immediately and is sending someone to the residence. While still on the phone, another subject arrives at the residence, collects the cards and immediately uses the cards for fraudulent purchases. We know of three incidents which occurred in Palm Bay, Brevard and Collier County; all appear to be related. The subjects have represented themselves on behalf of SunTrust, Fifth Third and Chase banks.

****Update!! They’ve been reunited with their family! Thanks for all the shares. These two friendly ladies were found wandering around in the Pasadena Yacht and Country Club. They don’t have tags or chips, so if you know where they live - please contact dispatch at (727) 582-6177 and ask to speak with a Gulfport Officer. Thank you!!

This event affords all the opportunity to come out and meet neighbors from both communities, while also making a difference. The communities of Gulfport and St. Petersburg need not be divided by anything more than four lanes of asphalt. Immediately after the cleanup, Gulfport Police Chief Rob Vincent and St. Petersburg Police Chief Anthony Holloway will host the 4th Annual Chiefs' Chat Community Forum. This event is an informal and relaxed way to learn more about how the two departments work together. Attendees are also offered the opportunity to ask questions and gather information. Both events take place on the Tangerine Greenway on 49th Street South at Tangerine Avenue. Cleanup participants will be divided into four teams and will clean 49th Street and its adjacent alleys from the Pinellas Trail south to Gulfport Blvd. / 22nd Avenue. Registration and a light breakfast begins at 8:15AM Mayors' Welcome begins at 9:00AM Cleanup begins at 9:15AM Chiefs' Chat starts at 10:30AM This event is organized by the City of Gulfport, the City of St. Petersburg and the Gulfport Neighbors.
