Oshkosh PD Investigates Phone Scam

The Oshkosh PD is investigating a phone
scam involving a male impersonating an officer of the Oshkosh Police
Department. An Oshkosh
resident informed Oshkosh PD of a phone call they had received, where a male
stated he was with the Police Department, and told the citizen they had a court
order to appear in court and they did not show up, and were advised to call
back. The citizen also said the caller ID was showing the Oshkosh Police
Department non-emergency number of 236-5700. Officers remind residents the
Police Department may call in regards to investigations but they would not call
about missing court or having a court order to appear in court.
