If you receive a Suspicious Call, Contact Kentwood Police directly at 616.698.6580
The Kentwood Police Department would like to warn area residents of a phone scam where the caller alleges to be a Kentwood police officer, detective, captain, etc. who has a warrant for their arrest and requests the individual to go to the bank to retrieve money.
The caller is apparently spoofing phone numbers, making it appear that the calls are legitimate from the Kentwood Police Department, but they are not. Spoofing is when a legitimate number appears in the victim’s caller ID, but the call is actually from someone trying to pull a scam.
