Police Blotter: Cash Coming From "Blue City"

Saturday, August 31, 2013

A man on Hamilton Avenue said he received a call from a man with a foreign accent who said he was with "Blue City."

He said he could hear a lot of noise in the background and it sounded like a call center.

The man congratulated him for having won $300. He said he needed to get his credit card numbers so the $300 could be "loaded" into his account.

The "Blue City" representative was very insistent that he get the credit card numbers.

Finally the North Chattanooga man had the good sense to terminate the conversation.

Two neighbors on Bennett Avenue have not gotten along for a lengthy time.
