LPD Reports Financial Scam

KSCB News - March 2, 2016 8:09 pm

It has been brought to the attention of the Liberal Police Department of a scam that is occurring around the area. A person is calling people at random and stating he is with the Liberal Police Department. The scammer informs the person he / she has a warrant for their arrest because they missed jury duty. The scammer will then tell the person they can avoid being arrested if they pay a fee. In the most recent case, the scammer told the person to load money onto a finance card and then give him the recharge number and security code from the back of the card. This allows the scammer to take the money off of the card from anywhere and without the card in his / her possession. The Liberal Police Department will not be calling any person asking them to wire money to avoid an arrest.

If you receive a phone call similar in nature to this, do not send any money and contact the Liberal Police Department at 620-626-0151.
