Alert—Phone Scammer Poses as CBI Agent and Demands Cash
10/05/2017—The Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) has received a handful of reports of an 'agent’ representing the Bureau calling individuals to pay a fine to avoid an arrest in connection with a case. During the call, the scammer identifies himself by the name of an actual CBI employee. Unfortunately, this has occurred on several occasions in recent weeks. This is a scam! The CBI would never call an individual and threaten an arrest if a debt, fine or other fee was not paid.
If you receive a call of this nature, simply hang up the phone and do not engage the caller. You can report the information to the CBI either via phone (1-855-443-3489) or via email (CBI.StopIDTheft@state.co.us).
