067/22 News Release - Phone Scam
October 31, 2022

CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department want to warn the public
about a phone scam that is occurring.

There have been cases where the complainants have received a phone call from a male who stated that they were with the Honolulu Police Department and that
the complainant was wanted for a warrant. They were then instructed to pay a
monetary fine via gift cards. The complainant believed that the call was legitimate because the caller ID showed that the phone call was originating from the Honolulu Police Department. The complainant then purchased several gift cards and made the payments over the phone. The complainant later realized that they had been scammed.

Law enforcement agencies including the Honolulu Police Department will never contact the public and request for payment to be made.
 
PHONE SPOOFING
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.
Please contact police if you receive these types of calls.

064/22 News Release Hawaiian Electric Company Scam
October 14, 2022

CrimeStoppers and the Honolulu Police Department would like to inform the
public about a Hawaiian Electric Company scam that is occurring.
 
There have been reports of residents receiving a call from someone purporting to be a Hawaiian Electric Company employee. The person is stating that the customer is delinquent on their electric bill and if immediate payment is not made, their electricity will be shut off. In two cases the customers were instructed to make payment via bitcoin.
 
Hawaiian Electric will never call a customer to ask for payment over the phone or threaten to immediately shut off service. If you receive a threatening call from a utility company, ‘Just hang up!’ and dial the customer service number listed on your actual bill or on the company website. Do not call the number on your caller ID because it will lead you right back to the scammer.

Local utilities offer the following tips to avoid phone and email scams:
 
• If someone calls from a utility demanding immediate payment over the
phone, via money transfer, prepaid debit cards, or by Bitcoin, it’s a scam.
 
• If the caller asks to meet the customer in person to pick up a payment, it’s
a scam.

• If you receive an email from your utility urging you to click on an
embedded link or attachment to resolve a utility issue or pay a bill, think
before you click. It’s likely a scam.

• If a utility worker shows up at your home or place of business, ensure that
person is wearing official attire with a logo, driving a properly labeled
vehicle and carrying company identification. When in doubt, call the
utility’s customer service center.
