Scam Warnings From BTU And Texas A&M Police

BTU and Texas A&M police (UPD) on Wednesday issued new warnings about phone scammers following multiple reports from targeted victims.

BTU posted on its social media that “We do NOT demand payment, threaten immediate disconnection, or ask for payment to be put on a pre-paid card”.

UPD posted on its social media they have heard from citizens who have received phone calls from individuals claiming that warrants were issued for their arrest. The caller in this scenario identifies them self as a member of the Texas A&M University Police and uses a spoof caller ID so it will appear the caller is using the UPD main phone number (979-845-2345). UPD asks those who receive a call to contact them to verify the information.
