Phone Scammers Not Really Kodiak Police

Jay Barrett/KMXT

The Kodiak Police Department is reporting that someone somewhere is impersonating the department over the phone and demanding money for missed court dates.

In a release from the department, they say the caller ID is similar to KPD’s, and that it is possible for sophisticated scammers to spoof the system.

The department urges anyone who receives such a call to not give the caller any personal or financial information.

The department says the Kodiak Police Department will never demand payment over the phone. 

The scam is similar to one recently where callers have impersonated the IRS, and demanding delinquent tax payments.
