Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

DES MOINES The Iowa Department of Public Safety's (DPS) Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) is warning of a scam targeting Iowans involving the DCI.

The Iowa DCI has received reports in the last two weeks from citizens receiving threatening phone calls from scammers posing to be DCI Agents. The scammers claim there are active arrest warrants issued and demand money to avoid being arrested.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety, and all Divisions within DPS, will never ask for money nor make threats of this nature. If you receive a phone call similar to those mentioned above, you are asked to contact your local law enforcement and the Iowa Attorney General's Office Hotline at (515) 281-5926 or (888) 777-4590.

Note: A criminal charge is merely an accusation and a defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
