Over the past week, the Urbana Police Department has taken at least five calls from citizens from both inside and outside Champaign County explaining that they had received a call from someone claiming to be from the Urbana Police Department. Part of the scam is that the phone number from the Urbana Police Department is being spoofed; it appears on caller ID as originating from the Urbana Police Department when it is not. The scam artist claimed that they had received “three federal complaints” regarding the person being called and that they were transferring them to a “supervisor.”
