(Kansas City, MO) – KC Water was informed by the Kansas City, MO Police Department that scammers are calling from a “spoofed” City Hall phone number to get personal information. An alert resident reported the caller claimed the resident’s social security number was about to expire.
The scammers set up a “spoof” phone number so that it would appear they were calling from City Hall. The phone number belongs to KC Water. However, this is not a KC Water employee. It is a scam.
If you get a call like this, please follow the advice from Kansas City Police and hang up.
