Jacksonville Beach police warns against scammers

The Jacksonville Beach Police Department’s non-emergency number (904-270-1661) has been “spoofed” by scammers.
The department reported it is currently receiving numerous calls from people all over the country responding to missed calls from the police department’s non-emergency number. Those who have answered the “spoofed” call said the person claims to be a bail bondsman and that $10,000 is needed for their son/grandson’s bail. So far, no local citizens have been contacted by the scammers, police said.
Police said if you receive a call from 904-270-1661 and the person on the other end is claiming to be a bail bondsman, just hang up.
