Oxford Police warn public about phone scam

OXFORD – A warning has been issued by the Oxford Police Department (OPD) regarding a scam in which a group of people are calling Oxford residents and claiming to be members of the OPD.

“The scammers have been calling residents of Oxford and surrounding communities and warning that residents owe money and that a warrant will be issued for their arrest,” said OPD Chief Richard Nolan.

Nolan said scammers are asking their targets to either turn themselves into the police or pay money owed in advance.

“The scammers have altered their phone number so that it appears to show the Oxford Police Department phone number and title listed on the victim’s caller ID,” said Nolan.
