WINTER HAVEN, FL — If you get a call from someone claiming to be from the police department and demanding money, think twice. You most likely are being targeted by scammers.

“Winter Haven Police have been made aware of callers claiming to be from the police department demanding money from unsuspecting citizens, or they will be arrested,” warned the Winter Haven Police Department Wednesday.

“We do not contact citizens for money and anyone who receives a call of this nature should hang up and let us know by calling 863-401-2256,” police added.
