Scammers Are At It Again – This Time Pretending to be Missouri Capitol Police

(Missourinet) Scammers are at it again – this time pretending to be Missouri Capitol Police.

Scammers have manipulated caller ID so phone calls appear to be coming from Missouri Capitol Police. This scam, known as spoofing, can be used to try and get personal information. The Missouri Department of Public Safety says more than two dozen people who have received these calls and have contacted Capitol Police. The greatest number of reports of fraudulent calls appear to have come from people in Missouri and Texas.

If you believe you were a victim and might have shared personal information, call the Missouri Attorney General’s hotline for fraud and deception complaints at 1-800-392-8222.
