DENVER — Denver Police said they’re getting a growing number of reports in which callers are impersonating officers and telling their victims they owe money for citations and warrants.

The scammers reportedly threaten immediate arrest unless the victim wires them money.

Police say you can avoid becoming a victim by never giving the caller your personal information. Also, ask the caller for names, badge numbers, and assignment information.

After that, verify that information directly with Denver Police or the sheriff’s department.
