FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — The Fort Wayne Police Department's phone number is now apart of a phone scam.
FWPD says scammers are "hijacking our police desk number 260-427-1222 and trying to get you to give them social security info."
Police say to never give any personal information over the phone.
The scammers will tell you that your number is being used for money laundering and other criminal acts.
Officers say elderly people are especially vulnerable to these types of scams.
