|NOT HOW IT SOUNDS|
ISP WARNS PUBLIC ABOUT PHONE SCAM 9-5-14
The Idaho State Police Department has taken several reports from throughout Idaho of citizens receiving telephone calls from people claiming to be from the Idaho State Police. The caller is telling people that they have an arrest warrant and that the person needs to pay money to clear the warrant or face arrest.
The Idaho State Police do not call people on the telephone to inform them that a warrant has been issued for them. Additionally, ISP does not call citizens and tell them they need to pay money or provide any financial information for any reason.
These types of scams play on the trust the public. Impersonating a law enforcement officer is also a serious crime. Anyone who has recently received one of these scam telephone calls or has become a victim of this scam is encouraged to call their local county or city law enforcement agency.
