Provo police officers will never call you and request you send in a payment, the tweet said.

“DO NOT, DO NOT send a money order or gift cards!” the tweet added. “Rather, you will receive something in the mail from us or we will come visit you.”

To report a phone scam, call Provo Police Department on 801-852-6210.
