Scam Alert - Phone fraudster pretends to be police to scam people out of their money

Hello,

We have an urgent Scam Alert.  A person is posing as a Danville Officer and calling residents on the phone to tell them they have missed jury duty and if the resident does not pay a fine, the resident will have a warrant for their arrest.  Chief of Police Allan Shields addressed this in a Scam Alert Message: https://youtu.be/cQPWS6GOvo0.  For more information about this and other types of fraud, please visit the Town of Danville Website: https://www.danville.ca.gov/637/Common-Scams-and-Schemes.

The Danville Police Department will not ask over the phone for money to be sent electronically or through third-party cash applications.  

For more information, contact Sergeant Jacob Bell at 925-314-3703.
