GLADSTONE — Gladstone Post; Citizens in the Gladstone area have received calls from people claiming to be the Michigan State Police.

The phone number on the caller ID appears to be a local number and has “Michigan State Police” listed as a name. The caller asks to update credit card information. This is a scam. Technology is readily available to make the number that appears on your caller ID seem local and legitimate when it may be coming from anywhere in the world.

Neither the Michigan State Police nor any other police agency will ever ask for financial information from you over the telephone.
