Bogus calls to area residents

Bogus calls to area residents

A new scam alert. Over two dozen people recently have received calls, purportedly from Madison police, saying they have an outstanding warrant and if they dont pay, they're going to jail.

Police stress they are not behind the calls, and would never ask for personal banking information.

What makes this scam more sophisticated is that they're able to manipulate Caller ID, so it looks as though the call is being made by Madison police.
