Springfield PD Warns of New Scam

With the holidays coming up scams are on the rise!

Springfield PD says there’s a national spoofing scam going around and we want you to be aware of it.

The crazy thing is, the scam call seems to originate from the Springfield PD headquarters!

But trust us, it’s not Springfield PD calling you.

So you’ll get this call and the person on the other end is asking for money..because of course they are…they want money because from what they claim, you have a friend or relative who is incarcerated or even worse- has been in an accident!

Do these people have no soul?! Come on

Be advised that SPD will never call you and request money over the phone for any reason.

If you receive a call matching the above description, contact Springfield Police at (417) 864-1810.
