Charles City Police Department Spoofed in Phone Scam

The Charles City Police Department has been targeted for use in a phone scam.

The CCPD says they spoke with a person in the 100 block of Park Avenue just after 9:30 a.m. Wednesday (07.13) morning in reference to a phone scam. CCPD says the perpetrators have “cloned” their phone number, 641-228-3366, in an effort to make the phone call look legitimate and get money from potential victims.

CCPD reminds the public not to send money to any unknown caller and, if you get a call from the police department number, that it is a scam. Contact CCPD  if you receive such a call.
