KENT, Ohio – The Kent Police Department is warning about a new scam.
Scammers are spoofing the Kent Police Department phone number.
Spoofing is when the phone number shows up as a legitimate source, but it is actually coming from someone else.
The Kent Police Department says someone using their phone number is telling people they have a warrant for their arrest.
The caller is then encouraging the person to dial another number for more information.
Never give anyone personal information over the phone.
