San Mateo residents targeted by phone scam
February 18, 2014, 05:00 AM

San Mateo police are warning the public of a scam in which a caller claims to be a law enforcement officer and then asks for money.

Several city residents reported receiving a phone call on Saturday from a person who warned them that a bench warrant had been issued for their arrest and instructed them to send money through a wire transfer, police said.

The caller told the residents that if they did not follow through with the transaction, they would be arrested, according to police.

San Mateo police said law enforcement agencies don’t make calls like that, and advised residents not to send any money if they receive a similar call.

Anyone who receives such a call is advised to contact police.
