LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Police are warning Lincoln residents of a phone scam coming from a number that appears to belong to city mayor’s office.
Police say they’re aware of at least eight spoofed calls coming from a number that resembles the main number from the mayor’s office. The caller tries to get personal medical information from the caller, leading them to believe it is a health insurance scam.
Police say the mayor’s office would never solicit personal information over the phone.
