Why would a scammer go as far as impersonating a police officer?
There is evil in the world but doing something like impersonating a police officer is pretty sickening. A scam like this can really instill fear in communities. If someone is impersonating an officer on the phone, what is stopping them from impersonating one in real life?
Keep this scam in mind if you get a weird phone call.
The Cass County Sheriff's Office Facebook post is asking North Dakotans to be vigilant when it comes to scams like this. If you feel you are being scammed by someone claiming to be an officer, you can call the police department yourself to confirm if the call is bogus or legitimate.
