MCPD Investigating Caller ID Spoofing Scam


The Missouri City Police Department is investigating a complaint from a resident who received a suspicious call from an individual demanding payment for an outstanding warrant.

Officials are closely tracking the case as the resident’s caller ID shows the incoming line as 281.403.8700, which is the City’s non-emergency Police phone number.

All warrant cases in Missouri City are handled through Municipal Court and no requests are made through the Police Department. In the event other citizens receive a similar spoof, they are urged to verify the authenticity of the request by directly dialing MCPD at 281.403.8700 or Municipal Court at 281.403.8669.

Staff inspected the City phone system and there are no issues with its operation. The investigation is ongoing and there are no further details available at this time.
