First Coast News
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Flagler County Sheriff's Office notified the Bunnell Police Department they received complaints from residents regarding a “spoofing” scam.
Deputies say people are reporting callers who manipulate the phone system to indicate on the Caller ID the same phone number as the one for the Bunnell Police Department.
When answered, the caller identifies themselves as the Bunnell Police Department with an arrest warrant and instructs the person to provide credit card information to pay a fine in order to avoid arrest.
