Financial Scams
January 31, 2019

Over the course of the last several weeks, the Sioux Falls Police Department has received numerous reports regarding financial scams.  Often the suspect seems very believable.  In many cases, the suspect will call or email and pose as an official from a government agency such as law enforcement, the courts, or the IRS.  They may also pose as a friend or family member (the truth is they have accessed some type of public record), again this makes the communication seem very believable. They may tell the victim that they need to pay a fine to avoid arrest, have missed jury duty and owe a fine or owe a tax bill and will be arrested if they don't pay. The caller may often “spoof” a phone number, which makes the caller ID appear as if it's coming from the actual government agency.  If you or someone you know has been the victim of a financial scam please report it to the Sioux Falls Police Department right away.
