Scam Alert – Spoofing

The Dallas Police Department has become aware of a phone call scam involving individuals claiming to be Dallas Police Officers and utilizing caller ID spoofing. What is spoofing?

Spoofing is when a caller deliberately falsifies the information transmitted to your caller ID display to disguise their identity. Scammers often use neighbor spoofing so it appears that an incoming call is coming from a local number, or spoof a number from a company or a government agency that you may already know and trust. If you answer, they use scam scripts to try to steal your money or valuable personal information, which can be used in fraudulent activity.

The Dallas Police Department will never call an individual and ask or demand financial payment of any kind. Be aware that these calls could appear to originate from other phone numbers or utilize different ploys to illicit personal information.

If you receive a call like this, please report the incident to http://www.IC3.gov(FBI-Internet Crime Complaint Center). The majority of these types of scams originate from foreign countries and will be investigated by our federal law enforcement partners.
