Another possible phishing scam is making its way across the Concho Valley.San Angelo Police issued a warning to the public Wednesday about calls they may receive from a subject in the 202 area code claiming to be with the U.S. Capital Police Inaugural Task Force.

The San Angelo Media Office spoke with U.S. Capital Police officials Wednesday morning and verified this is a possible phishing scam and the number being used is one of the agency’s old phone tree numbers.

A U.S. Capital Police representative said not to call the number and that they are working to remove the number.
