SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department is warning the public about scammers attempting to solicit money through a phone scam.

In a tweet, SLCPD said scammers are “spoofing” their phone number as SLCPD dispatch number of 801-799-3000 and trying to defraud people into giving them money.

SLCPD also reported that the scammers would threaten people with police action if they did not cooperate.

SLCPD will never call to solicit money from people.
