WACO, Texas (KWTX) - The Waco Police Department is warning residents about a new phone scam from scammers asking for money.

Several businesses in Waco received phone calls from scammers claiming to be with the Waco Police Department.

“This is not us, nor would we call you and ask for any type of payment over the phone,” said a spokesman with the Waco Police Department.

Waco Police also want to remind residents that officers do not collect money for citations that have been issued.

Fines for citations are collected by the Waco Municipal Court.

“If you aren’t sure if you owe any money to the police department, you can contact our records division and they can help direct you appropriately,” police said.
