Scammers posing as FPD Employees

We recently received word of a scam involving the Fullerton Police Department business line: (714)738-6800. The reporting party who contacted FPD received a call that indicated it was from FPD's number on the caller ID. A male stated that they were a Detective with the Fullerton Police Department. The male advised our reporting party that she owed taxes and there was a warrant for her arrest. Beli...eving this call came from the Fullerton PD since the called ID stated it was in fact FPD, she sent the subject $3500.

The Fullerton Police Department does not handle taxes and will not contact you stating you have a warrant. If you receive a call similar in nature, ask the subject for their name and badge number, DO NOT PAY ANYTHING, and contact us immediately.
