072/20 - News Release - Modeling Scam
November 18, 2020
CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department want to warn the public about a modeling scam on social media.
Recently, the HPD has seen an increase in cases involving juvenile females being solicited by “modeling scouts” via Instagram. These juveniles are receiving messages from the scouts who promise a career in modeling. The juveniles are then instructed to send photos of themselves wearing little or no clothing. In some cases, the scouts offered to send a vehicle to juvenile’s residence to arrange an in-person meeting at the mall.
Please do not engage in conversations with strangers online. Parents are also encouraged to talk to their children about the dangers of social media.

064/20 News Release - Scams
October 08, 2020
CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department would like to inform the public of various scams that are currently occurring.
TELEPHONE SCAMS INVOLVING GOVERNMENT AGENCIES
Two government agencies have been continuously identified in telephone scams.
- INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE
- SOCIAL SECURITY ADMINISTRATION
The government does not contact persons by phone in order to collect debts and/or threaten arrests.
Federal Government Agencies do not accept gift cards for payment of legitimate debt.
The Honolulu Police Department does not assist the Federal Government with debt collection.
There is an app that allows phone spoofing. It conceals the number of the phone being used and uses another phone number to appear in your caller ID.
It can appear to be a Federal Government Agency or your local police department. This can also be used to imitate utility companies, Hawaiian Electric Company or Board of Water Supply, in order to collect false debts.
Do not discuss vital information with anyone who calls. Hang up, check your telephone book for the proper number of the agency identified in the call. Contact that agency and ask if there is a problem with your account.
Understand that gift cards are not recoverable. Once the card number is given to a caller, the money can be spent, and is then not subject to a refund.
Although the gift card may be traced to the point of purchase, that does not guarantee the culprit will be identified and prosecuted.
You have to enter to win. Sweepstakes winners do not have to pay to receive their winnings. Sweepstakes programs require multiple contacts to determine a winner. You will not get one phone call advising you that you have won a sweepstakes. Again, do not give vital information to someone who has called you and do not send money, by any means to receive your winnings.
063/20 News Release - Auto Thefts
September 29, 2020
CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department would like to inform the public about a spike in auto theft cases where vehicles are being stolen with the use of spare keys.
Auto Theft detectives are seeing many cases where thieves are stealing vehicles because the spare keys are being left in the vehicle. Once thieves break into the vehicle, they are able to find the spare key and are able to drive away with the vehicle. Thieves are also able to steal the vehicle because keys are being left inside the vehicle when the driver leaves their vehicle momentarily at a store or gas station.
We advise the public to not leave your spare keys in the vehicle. If you have multiple vehicles parked next to each other, do not leave the spare keys for the other vehicles inside. Also, please take your keys with you whenever you exit your vehicle.
060/20 - News Release - Extortion Scams
