(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) The St. Joseph Police Department has identified a phone scam in which an unknown subject from outside the city is calling citizens and identifying themselves as a police officer.
The subject is using the names of real police officers.
Then, the subject will state that the person they have called has a warrant and can handle it through a monetary arrangement.
SJPD says this is a scam and to contact the police department if you receive a call of this nature and reminds citizens to not render a payment over the phone.
