SCMPD warn of Police Officer Scam

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department is warning residents and businesses about a scam involving a police officer who does not exist.

A caller is telling potential victims that he is working a credit card fraud case and needs their credit card numbers for the investigation.

Police said if anyone receives such a phone call, they should not provide credit card information or any other personal information.

Detective Bill Collins is the name the imposter sometimes uses, and no such detective exists.

Contact Crimestoppers at 912.234.2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020 if anyone has information regarding the case.

Tipsters remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
