FRAUD ALERT - 11/15/2015 - We have gotten two reports tonight from residents of St. Charles County stating someone called them purporting to be a Lt. Johnson with the O'Fallon Police. The caller stated they we calling the victim to collect money for a bench warrant for their arrest. The caller informed them they could pay off their warrant through PayPal.
This is absolutely a fraudulent request and a scam. We have no Lt. Johnson and we would never call requesting payment for a warrant over the phone. If you get a similar call hang up immediately. If you are able to gain a call back number please contact your local police department.
Never give your personal information or make any payment over the phone to anyone claiming to be a representative of law enforcement.
