ALPINE, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – The Alpine Police Department is warning residents of another phone scam circulating in the area. Officials say they have received several complaints about a scammer that calls and claims to be a Kevin Scott with Alpine Police.
When the scammer calls, the Alpine Police Department number even shows on the caller ID, according to a release. APD officials say they believe the number is being “spoofed.”
The scammer then tells victims that due to their poor credit, they owe money and can contact a David Williams with US Legal Support to make payments, according to the release.
Alpine Police are urging residents to avoid giving out any information to the scammers and to call the APD if they receive the call.
