Scammers Impersonating Law Enforcement

Craig Police are warning residents of a new scam, where people are calling targets in Northwest Colorado and South Central Wyoming, claiming to be an employee of a  local law enforcement agency. The callers tell the victims they have a warrant out for their arrest, which they can avoid by paying money to the scammer. Numerous people in our area have been targeted by this scam in the last couple weeks.  The victims are told to purchase a cash card and relay the number on the card to the scammer. Be aware that law enforcement will never call to alert a person about a warrant, and will never request cash or payment over the phone.  If you receive a call of this nature, it should be reported immediately to local law enforcement.
