The Pearl Police Department has received reports from residents saying a caller is identifying themselves as a specific officer from Pearl claiming they owe court fines.
The scammer then allegedly is asking people to immediately pay the fine over the phone with a credit or debit card.
Pearl PD nor Court Services will never ask you to pay a fine over the phone, according to a post from Pearl police. They advise that you do not give your credit or debit card information to anyone over the phone.
If you have any questions please call Pearl PD at 601-939-7000.
