The City of Rockford is notifying the community of phone call scams involving phone numbers associated with the Rockford Police Department.

On Sunday the Rockford Police Department was notified by the Rockford 911 Center of a phone call scam. Residents from outside of Illinois reported receiving calls that look as though they originate from 815-966-2900 ND 779-500-6555. Both numbers are RPD related.

The callers are asking for Social Security and Credit Card information and are not from the police department.

Citizens receiving phone calls are asked to note the name and phone number from the caller, and report it to the non-emergency police number at 815-966-2900.
