Springfield Police Warn of Spoofing Scam Calls
The Springfield Police Department has been made aware of a national spoofing scam in which the call appears to be originating from SPD Headquarters. The caller then requests money, claiming the victims’ relative had been incarcerated or was in an accident.
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.
