The Stillwater Police Department learned Thursday morning about a citizen who was contacted by a subject claiming to be a Stillwater PD officer.
The caller told the victim she had missed court and a warrant had been issued for her arrest. The caller was attempting to get the victim to send money immediately to take care of the warrant. Fortunately, the victim knew it was a scam and there was no loss in the case.
The Stillwater Police Department does not call and demand immediate payment for warrants on the phone. These scams are designed to create a sense of fear and urgency in the victim in order to get them to act quickly.
