Scam alert: CHPD Phone number used in call scams aimed at collecting money

 

Residents have reported receiving phone calls in the past week from what appears to be Cottonwood Heights Police Department claiming that there are outstanding warrants for their arrest and asking for money. Reports say that the Police phone number (801-944-7100) shows on their caller ID system and the calls come from someone claiming to be from Cottonwood Heights Police and uses the fabricated warrants spoof to ask for money over the phone.

These calls are 100 percent false. The Cottonwood Heights Police Department will never ask for money for any reason. If an individual does have warrants, we will contact you in person.

Anyone who has received these calls, or has questions, is encouraged to contact the Cottonwood Heights Police at 801-944-7100.
