The Maui Police Department warns the public about a phone scam in which the caller claims to be an officer and that the person they are calling has outstanding warrants and needs to go and pay at the Sheriff’s office.

The caller is then instructed to seek reimbursement from Maui County.

The caller is described as a male speaking with a drawl and calling from a number (808) 800-0047.

According to the Maui Police Department an officer would never call an individual about outstanding warrants and ask for payment.

If you receive such a call, do not give out any personal information, hang up and then notify police.
