‘Scam Alert’ Issued By Fort Collins Police Services
This information was shared by Fort Collins Police Services on my neighborhoods part of the website "Nextdoor" yesterday and several people commented they had received this fake call.
We’ve taken numerous reports of a caller who identifies himself as Sgt. Kent Robinson from our agency. The caller ID appears to be coming from FCPS. The scammer instructs people to call a different number back to take care of a problem. This is a scam with a “spoofed” phone number. We do have a Sgt. Robinson on staff; however, he was actually out directing traffic today when these calls were happening. Our Kent would like you to protect your personal and financial information and avoid falling victim to this scam!
