Washington State University wants everyone to be aware of an ongoing phone scam targeting people across the state.
There have been multiple reports of people receiving phone calls from someone claiming to be an official with the WSU Police Department. The caller demands money and threatens legal trouble if the funds are not sent. Most alarming is that caller ID shows the name and phone number from a legitimate police agency.
WSU Police want you to know that they will never call anyone demanding money. Even if the caller is able to provide sensitive information (last four digits of social security number, address, date of birth, etc.) do not provide information to them.
If you do receive a call like this, WSU Police want you to report it to them at (509) 335-8548.
