NORTON SHORES, Mich. — Police in Norton Shores say the department has received multiple reports of scammers posing as police in order to get money. 

The scammers are using software that allows their incoming call to show as up coming from the police department and are untraceable. If someone picks up, the scammers claim they have a warrant out for their arrest and demand money for payment. 

Don't fall for it, it's a scam.

"We do not demand money while informing people of warrants over the phone," the Norton Shores Police Department said on Facebook.

Authorities are telling people to hang up the phone and contact them immediately. The Norton Shores Police Department can be reached at 231-733-2691.

SCAM ALERT: We have received reports of calls being made from a sub... ject identifying themselves as a Norton Shore Police Officer stating that they have a warrant for the caller and demanded money. In the past, they have used software which shows up as the Norton Shores Police on caller ID.
