Phone scammers and unsolicited callers usually attempt to obtain your personal information for purposes of identity theft and/or monetary gain. Phone scammers may use tactics such as fear or intimidation. Knowing these tactics and trusting your instincts can help you from becoming a victim of a phone scam.
Recently, reports have been received of “spoofed” scam calls allegedly from an officer from the Cherry Hills Village Police Department (CHVPD). The caller’s phone number might show up as a number from the CHVPD. If concerned, don’t answer these calls. Instead, let these calls go into your voicemail. Chances are, scam callers will not leave a message. If there is a message, and a specific office is mentioned, verify the phone number before calling.
