CUMBERLAND — Residents in Cumberland are being targeted by a phone scam where calls appear to come from local police officers, authorities warned on Tuesday.

The Cumberland Police Department (CPD) has issued a scam alert after several reports of residents receiving calls from individuals claiming to be specific officers from the department.

These fraudulent callers have been soliciting money, prompting a swift response from local law enforcement.

Officials emphasized that no genuine CPD officer would call residents to ask for money under any circumstances.

The police are urging the community to remain vigilant and to protect their personal information.

If a resident receives such a call, the police advise not to share any personal details and to hang up immediately.

Anyone with concerns or who has received a suspicious call is encouraged to contact the Cumberland Police Department directly at 207-829-6391 for assistance.

The CPD is actively investigating the scam and is asking anyone with information that could lead to the identification of the culprits to come forward.
