DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — If you have received a message from someone asking you to contact a Daytona Beach officer, the police department is warning that the call could be a scam.
Police said scammers are using real names of people who work at the department but are using fake numbers.
If this happens to you, do not call the number they give you. Instead, call Volusia County dispatch at 386-254-4689 to report it.
In an effort to fight robocalls, the state Attorney General Ashley Moody said she is working with the Federal Communications Commission to help stop scammers targeting Floridians.
Moody announced Thursday that the agency will share information with the state.
This partnership also allows Florida leaders to access information they didn’t have access to before.
