On Thursday morning, an officer met with the victim of an imposter scam. The victim received an email he believed to be of a friend's email address, where he was asked to do a favor. The favor included sending who the victim believed to be his alleged friend, funds in the form of gift cards. The victim helped whom he believed to be a friend, sending him gift cards on that one occasion. It wasn't until receiving further requests from his "friend" that the victim realized they had fallen for a scam. This case is being investigated by Brookline PD.
