Scam warning issued

DELTA – Delta Police have received six reports of fraud where criminals pretending to be police officers call up potential victims asking for cash in exchange for making a supposed warrant for their arrest go away.


The scammers tell people they have outstanding warrants for unpaid debt, missed jury duty or some minor infraction, and that a fine is due.


Sgt. Sarah Swallow said people who get this kind of call should ask for the alleged officer’s badge number and name and then call the police department for verification.
