Scam Alert

Post Date:06/21/2019 2:00 PM
The Sausalito Police Department has received a report that its primary phone number of (415) 289-4170 has been spoofed by an unknown entity and used in an attempted phone scam. The scammers identify themselves as law enforcement and IRS agents. They use aggressive tactics and threaten some form of judicial punishment if you do not comply with their request. These threats include telling you a warrant will be issued for your arrest or that an officer will come to your house to arrest you immediately.

The Sausalito Police Department will not ask for any form of payment over the phone. Do not give your personal information to any unverified caller. If you receive an unsolicited call and suspect that it is fraudulent, hang up and call the source yourself to ensure you are speaking to a legitimate employee.
