Southlake Police Warn of Phone Scam

The Southlake Police Department has received several reports today regarding the latest phone scam.

The scam works like this: an individual calls and identifies him or herself as a police officer or constable and tells you that you have outstanding warrants. The caller then instructs you to meet him or her at various locations in town with cash to make payment on the warrant(s).

This is a scam! The Southlake Police Department encourages anyone who receives this type of call to hang up the phone immediately and contact police. Legitimate law enforcement agencies will never contact you via the phone and instruct you to meet them somewhere to make payment on warrants. Thanks and stay safe this holiday season!
