Scam Artist Claiming to be Police Officer

LOWNDES CO., Miss – (WCBI) Someone posing as a police officer is trying to steal your identity.

A man, claiming to be “Officer Tom Jones with the Columbus Police Department,” is trying to collect payment on fictitious traffic citations.

He is reportedly telling people that they can pay over the phone, and that all he needs is a social security number.

Don’t do it. Hang up and call your local authorities.
