Cheyenne, Wyo. - The Cheyenne Police Department is warning residents of the return of an old scam.
They’ve gotten several reports from people who say scammers are calling, claiming to be with the police department in an effort to try and get money. CPD has said in the past that this is not something they do and would never fund raise through phone calls.
Other scammers will also call claiming to be with either CPD or the Laramie County Sheriff's Office saying you have a warrant out for your arrest, but if you make a payment over the phone, you’ll be okay. Make no mistake, both of these types of calls are scams.
If you get a call like this, hang up and call the police and report it. You can also educate yourself on scams through the FBI's scam awareness page.
