Nixa police warn of phone scammers impersonating department

NIXA, Mo. — The Nixa Police Department is warning citizens of a phone scam impersonating police and staff.

According to a press release, Nixa police have received multiple reports of someone impersonating them trying to scam them, threatening to serve a subpoena or other “urgent legal matters.” The scammers are saying they are a particular actual member of the Nixa Police Department command staff and are leaving voice messages for some people who are not answering the phone.

The scammers are spoofing the actual Nixa Police Department phone number (417-725-2510) to make it appear the call is coming from headquarters, but they are asking potential victims to call them back at 417-273-8263.
