Scottsdale Police Department warns of scam calls appearing to be from Valley law enforcement agencies. Most law enforcement agencies will not ever call to request money. The callers are convincing, persistent and bold.


  • Use a fake caller ID that displays correct police information.

  • Make claims such as: you missed court, have a warrant or have outstanding fines and will be arrested if you don't pay.

  • Threaten that you must pay immediately.

  • Request payments through platforms like Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, Green Dot, Square or prepaid debit cards and gift cards.

If you get one of these calls, hang up and then report it to the police non-emergency number at 480-312-5000.
