The City of Sequim Police Department Warns of a New Phone Scam

Sequim Police Department Patch

The Sequim Police Department has taken several calls in recent week from citizens who are receiving scam/robo calls reportedly from Apple.  Victims are reporting receiving phone calls every 10 to 15 minutes.  Blocking the caller has resulted in more phone calls from a different phone number.  Some victims are reporting requests for money and threatening to send a collector and a warrant for their arrest.

If you are receiving these types of call, hang up and report the call to the following agencies. 

FTC (Federal Trade Commission): https://www.ftccomplaintassistant.gov/#crnt&panel1-1

IC3 (Internet Crime Complaint Center): https://www.ic3.gov/default.aspx

The Sequim Police Department can only investigate a phone scam if a victim suffers a loss.  Please contact the Police Department at (360) 683-7227 with questions.
