The Bloomington Police Department wants to remind you always to be skeptical of callers asking for personal or banking information. Whether it’s someone claiming to be with the IRS or your cable company, when in doubt, do not give your banking information out.

If you receive a scam phone call and do not suffer a financial loss or loss of personal information, there is no need to report the incident because BPD can only take action if there has been a loss.

If you receive a scam phone call from someone impersonating Comcast, call the agency to report it at 1-800-COMCAST. Comcast agents do not call customers to manually take payment information. Comcast does not typically call customers. Most notifications about payment are sent via email or mail.
