RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Richmond police are warning of a scammer impersonating one of their detectives.
Police said they have taken several phone calls regarding the scam.
Officers said the scammer tells the victim that they have a warrant, but can make payments by phone or buy a green dot card to stop the detective from coming. One scammer even used the name of an actual detective.
“Remember: RPD detectives and officers will NEVER call and ask you to send money and would never take a payment through a pre-paid card,” police posted to Facebook.
Contact police for any questions or if you believe you are being scammed.
