CHEYENNE, Wyo. (PRESS RELEASE) - The Cheyenne Police Department is warning the public of a phone scam that attempts to solicit monetary donations to benefit local law enforcement.

During the call, the scammer impersonates a police officer asking for local support. The scam call may appear to be coming from a local police station on the recipient’s caller ID.

These solicitations for donations are not in any way affiliated with the Cheyenne Police Department. Never provide your Social Security number, credit card numbers or bank account information to anyone during an unsolicited phone call or an unannounced visit.

If you need to verify the identity of a police officer, please feel free to contact our dispatch center at (307) 637-6524.
