The DeKalb Police Department has received reports of a telephone scam regarding automobile warranties. A subject will receive a telephone call from a robo-call system directing the person to press a button to talk to a real person. That person then solicits money under the guise of renewing a warranty. The company is identifying themselves as “Warranty Services” and appears to be fraudulent.
All citizens should exercise caution before releasing any personal or financial information over the telephone. Anyone with information regarding this incident or who observe any suspicious activity are encouraged to report it to the DeKalb Police Department at 815-748-8400 or dial 911 in the event of an emergency.
