Police 'Swatting' Hoax

Saint-quentin, Canada

#1 Apr 17, 2014
The swatting hoax hit Old Saybrook as Police dispatchers recieve a call saying there was hostages been held on Springbrook Rd in a house, As officers got there they realised the situation was a hoax call, and the term 'swatting' is what Hackers use as there term of payback. It's a fake call to a dispatcher basically saying there is a bomb or someone is held hostage in the house and it's the Dispatches duty to believe that the story is true and has to dispatch units immediately.
