Law enforcement officials say there is another phone scam to be aware of. This one involves callers claiming to be members of the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation staff. The division says it has received reports from the public that scammers are trying to extort money from residents, misrepresenting themselves as DCI agents working with the FBI to collect money. Some scammers are using false agent names and badge numbers. Those targeted also report that their caller ID devices display a number for the Iowa Department of Public Safety. Law Enforcement agencies note the DCI does not request payment over the phone. Anyone receiving a phone call similar to those described by the DCI are asked to hang up and contact local law enforcement and the Iowa Attorney General’s Office hotline.
