Who the heck would want to act like an officer and them ask for these crazy things exchange for not being charged?? Let alone a Buffalo Police officer??? Buffalo Police are warning you about a new phone scam.

This person is calling local numbers using a police district phone number, and pretending to be a Buffalo police officer.

That person then tells you to buy gift cards to avoid being charged with a crime. Police say if you get this call, you should hang up immediately and call 911 to report it. Don't go for it at all!
