Caution: Hustlers are spoofing Michigan State Police phone number

NORTHERN MICHIGAN- The Michigan State Police (MSP) Cadillac Post have been made aware that Michigan residents are receiving “spoof” phone calls with the telephone number of the MSP Cadillac Post. The callers state they are from the MSP and that they are conducting an investigation or begin to ask for money to avoid arrest or other legal trouble stemming from warrants in the State of Texas.

The MSP is reminding the public that although someone from our agency may contact you via telephone regarding an investigation, warrant, or other official business, we will always identify ourselves by our rank and name. We will also provide a badge number upon request. Additionally, while the MSP may advise a resident over the phone about a warrant for their arrest and a bond amount, we will never ask for you to send to money to us.

All bond payments take place in-person with a uniformed member at the post, on the road, or with court personnel at the applicable court. Payment will never be asked to be sent in the form of gift cards or through a third-party money transfer service including, but not limited to, PayPal, Venmo, Western Union, MoneyGram, Google Pay, Apple Pay, and Cash App.

If a phone call that appears to be from the MSP is asking for money to be sent, personal information such as a social security number, or otherwise appears suspicious, please end the call, and notify your local Michigan State Police post.
