Scam warning from the Division of Criminal Investigation

Posted: Updated:
The Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation says they won't call you to ask for money, after recent reports that scammers are doing that in their name.
Within the last two weeks, the DCI has received multiple reports of a scam, where the caller claims to be with the DCI.
The caller threatens people posing as DCI agents and says they're calling about active arrest warrants, and they demand money to avoid acting on those warrants.
The DCI, and all Divisions within the Iowa Department of Public Safety, say they'll never ask for money or threaten you like this. If you received a call, contact your local police, or the Iowa Attorney General's Office Hotline at (515) 281-5926 or (888) 777-4590.
