DEKALB, Ill. (WIFR) -- The DeKalb Police Department warns locals to watch out for a phone scam in which a person has been impersonating an officer and asking for money.

According to a Facebook post, the police department announced it does not ask for money donations over the phone.

Police suggest you should avoid providing any personal or financial information if asked to make a donation over the phone. Officers say some of these phone calls might use a fake caller ID.
