Marquette City Police are warning residents of a phone scam in the area.
The department says people are getting scam calls that appear on their caller ID as “Marquette Police Department” with the department’s phone number, also known as caller ID “spoofing”.
The caller then says the department is investigating a report of identity theft and they request personal information. The caller is said to have a foreign accent.
Police say if you receive such a call don’t give them your personal information…simply hang up.
