Oconomowoc Police warn against scam where police department's number was spoofed

OCONOMOWOC, Wis. (CBS 58) -- The City of Oconomowoc Police Department has received complaints that our main telephone number has been "SPOOFED" (fraudulently identifying the caller's phone number as being the Oconomowoc Police Department). The caller is identifying themselves as an Oconomowoc police officer and stating that there are warrants that must be paid immediately.

The Oconomowoc Police Department does not call wanted persons and request phone payment on warrants. If you receive a call of this nature, do not provide any personal information and hand up immediately.

If you receive a phone call from the department, and are concerned about the legitimacy of the call please contact our dispatch center (262-567-4401) to verify the call.
