The Moose Jaw Police Service is advising the public about an attempted phone scam.

Police have received multiple reports of a caller pretending to be a grandchild in need.  The caller indicates they need money right away and states the police will call them.  Once information is obtained from the initial call, a second call is placed to the “victim” from someone impersonating a police officer.  The “victim” is instructed to withdraw a large amount of money and await further directions.

The Moose Jaw Police Service is reminding the public not to provide personal information over the phone.  

If you ever question if you’re speaking with a police officer, you can phone 306-694-7600.
