Scam Uses Nixa Police Department Phone Number
The City of Nixa is warning residents of a scam. A scammer is calling residents, claiming to be Nixa police officer, Kelly Smith, and telling them they have to pay up or be arrested, according to a news release from the city. The phone number that shows up on a person's caller I.D. is the Nixa Police Department number.
But, city officials said there isn’t a police officer in Nixa named Kelly Smith, and Nixa police would never call citizens and threaten them for nonpayment.
If you receive a call that you believe is a scam, you’re asked to report it to Nixa Police at 417-725-2510.
