Madera police warn Valley residents of phone scammers impersonating officers


MADERA, Calif. - The callers identify themselves as police and ask for someone by name and the phone number shown on the caller ID is the main number for the Madera Police Department.

The crooks tell the person they owe money because of a lawsuit or unpaid bill and have to call another phone number to pay the bill or they will be arrested.

Madera police say they will never call and demand a payment to stay out of jail.
