Arrest warrant phone scam - 01/10/16
In the past week the Oregon City Police Department has received multiple reports of a male subject calling citizens posing as a detective from a local police agency and soliciting money to clear up an arrest warrant. This is a phone scam. Arrest warrants can be verified by calling a phone number listed on the website of the local Sheriff agency. Citizens should always be wary of unexpected phone calls requesting personal information, credit card information, bank account information, requests to purchase pre-pay cards, etc. If there is any doubt call your local police agency.
