Public Service Announcement
August 19, 2014 
The Alamogordo Police Department would like to warn residents of the latest phone scam. 
On August 19, 2014, an Alamogordo resident reported receiving a call from an individual identifying himself as a Special Agent with the FBI. The fictitious Special Agent advised the resident that he was the recipient of a large cash award from Publishers Clearing House. The resident was requested to send $950.00 under a fictitious name to an address in Mexico City, Mexico. When the resident told 
the fictitious Special Agent he was not interested due to believing this was a phone scam, the fictitious Special Agent informed the resident that to verify his story, a representative from the local police department would be contacting him. 
The resident then reported he was contacted by a subject identifying himself as a Police Officer at the Alamogordo Police Department. The person claiming to be an APD Police Officer then verified to the resident that the cash award from Publishers Clearing House was legitimate and he was to await a call from a Special Agent to verify sending the security money to Mexico City, Mexico. 
The Alamogordo resident also advised that the Alamogordo Police Department’s number was posted on his caller I.D. which would lead most people to believe this might be a legitimate call. This is referred to as “Spoofing” which leads recipients of a call to believe they are receiving a call from the police department when, in fact, they are not. The public should report this type of incident to the Alamogordo Police Department immediately.
