Avoid Scam: collection calls not from PD

Posted: Updated:


Police are warning people in Adamsville of a phone scam.  Police received a report of someone calling people who live in Adamsville, claiming to be the Chief of Police.  The report shows the telephone call was harassing in nature.  The person is alleging to be collecting a debt, and pressuring the individual for personal information including a credit card number.  It was also stated that the person would be arrested if they did not comply.  This call may even trick your caller ID and show as a City of Adamsville phone number. 

The police chief wants to make sure people know this is a scam.  The police department does not place collection calls.  If you get one of these phone calls, police say do not provide the caller with any information.  Also, immediately report this call to the Adamsville Police Department, Dispatch Unit at 205-674-5671.
