Lincoln City Police have been receiving complaints regarding a phone scam. The scammers have been identifying themselves as a Lieutenant or Captain with the Lincoln City Police Department. They are demanding payment regarding an arrest warrant. They are using a masked caller ID to make it appear like the LCPD non-emergency number is calling.
Please understand the Lincoln City Police Department will never call and ask for any type of payment. If you receive a call like this, ask for the person’s name and call the LCPD at (541-994-3636) and tell them what was said.
