Biloxi PD warns of scam calls claiming to be police
The Biloxi Police Department received several complaints regarding scam calls.
Individuals were notified that they were being contacted by personnel of the Biloxi Police Department.
The individuals were advised they had outstanding warrants, and to not contact local law enforcement in reference to the notification. The caller then attempted to obtain money from the victims advising them to purchase gift cards in excess of $1000.00.
The Biloxi Police Department wants to alert residents to these fraudulent scams, in an attempt to prevent people from becoming victimized.
The Biloxi Police Department would also like to remind you to never provide identifying information over the telephone, or through email to any unknown foreign address.
