WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – The Wilmington Police Department wants you to know about the resurgence of a phone scam in the area.
WPD says callers are posing as police employees from a number that appears to come from the PD. They offer to take care of an outstanding arrest warrant if you just send them a little cash. That’s not how it works.
The WPD says that’s a scam and to avoid sending people money. If you feel you’re a victim of this one, call (910) 343-3609 to report the crime.
