Callers in Negaunee Posing as Members of Michigan State Police

Filed under: U.P. News Updates |

Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Michigan State Police at Central dispatch in Negaunee are letting residents know about a new phone scam circulating in the area.

Troopers say callers are posing as members of the Michigan State Police, claiming residents must pay money to clear a warrant to avoid being arrested.

The State Police want residents to know that law enforcement will never call residents to notify them of a warrant or ask for money or bank account information.

Scammers usually give the victim a sense of urgency, pretending to be an official of a legitimate organization to fool the victim into providing sensitive information.

To avoid becoming a victim of a scam do not give personal information to unknown callers or respond to unsolicited email from unknown senders. Be sure to report any suspicious contacts to police.
