The Waterloo Police Department has received several reports of a telephone scam.

According to reports, the victims receive a phone call from a collection agency claiming that the police will arrest them because the victim had taken out a loan and was now delinquent on the payment.

The phone number being used is 707-857-5610. Return calls from police have resulted in the person hanging up. Area code 707 is a California area code.

Police reminds citizens to NEVER give personal information or account numbers over the phone.
