Dublin police say there's a scammer on the loose, identifying themself as a sergeant with the Alameda County Sheriff's Office.
Police said last Tuesday a Dublin resident reported receiving a phone call from the person asking for money. The resident called the real police and was told it was a fraud.
Detectives are investigating this incident and trying to identify a suspect. Dublin police ask residents to contact the police department at 925-833-6670 upon receiving a call suspected of being a scam or if someone appears to be impersonating a police officer.
Those who suspect they've already received a call from 510-941-0249, or any number from someone claiming to be from law enforcement and asking for money, should call police at 925-462-1212.
People in unincorporated Alameda County should call 510-667-7721.
