Sioux Falls PD alerts public of scam calls

August 23, 2023

SIOUX FALLS, S.D.–The Sioux Falls Police Department says numerous scam calls have been made in recent days where the caller impersonates a police officer.

The scammer threatens to arrest people for warrants, missing jury duty or unpaid fines. That’s how scammers convince people to send money, gift cards or cyber currency.

The Sioux Falls PD urges the public to verify that these types of calls are legitimate by calling the police department to speak with the officer that is claiming to be making the call, or to make sure the information is correct.

Law enforcement does not accept any payment through gift cards or cyber currency.
