Phone scam involving officer impersonators
SCAM Alert – We were recently made aware of a telephone scam in which a caller with a cloned Tukwila PD number calls residents impersonating Tukwila PD officers. A similar scam has been reported in cities across the region.
The caller impersonating an officer claims that you or someone in your household has a criminal warrant for their arrest. This variant of it is that they are trying to get you to give them your social security number and or other personal/financial information to “verify” that it’s the same person they are referring to on the warrant.
If you receive and unsolicited call from someone claiming to be a Tukwila PD officer, please know that we do not randomly call to solicit personal or financial information.
If you ever have a doubt that it is a Tukwila officer that is calling you, please call our non-emergency line at 206-241-2121 to verify that you are speaking with an actual officer.
