Scam Alert

Monday, November 25, 2019

The Polk County Attorney's Office has been advised of the re-surfacing of a phone scam, wherein the caller claims to be a member of law enforcement calling about an active arrest warrant. Law Enforcement does not make such calls. Please be vigilant and do not provide such callers any personal information such as your social security number, date of birth, or address. Likewise, do not provide any bank account numbers or credit card numbers to such callers. Even when these callers claims to be from a local police agency, they are often operating in another state or country, so if you wish to report such a call, the Federal Trade Commission takes reports on this issue and when possible may follow-up with appropriate action against the entity that is calling.
