ISP: Numerous reports on the Indiana State Police’s latest phone scam in the Indianapolis Post
from: Garrett lane
Indianapolis, IN — The Indiana State Police (ISP) Indianapolis Post has received many complaints about a phone scam in the area.
The caller ID on the call reads “Indiana State Police Post 52,” with the phone number listed as 317-899-8577 (the post office’s phone number).
The scammers, posing as police officers, have informed callers that they have an arrest warrant out. The scammers then attempted to obtain personal information and demand a monetary refund in order to process the search warrant.
These phone scams can consist of telling the victim their identity has been stolen, selling insurance, or trying to raise money for non-existent charities.
The Indiana State Police say these types of phone scammers are ubiquitous and often play on your emotions to get your money.
The easiest way to protect yourself from phone scammers, according to ISPs, is to either ignore unwanted calls from unknown callers or hang up if something doesn’t seem right.
The ISP encourages anyone who may have been the victim of a phone scam to immediately report the incident to local law enforcement.
