New scam using Colorado State Patrol making the rounds

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. (KKTV) - Posing as Colorado State Patrol employees is the latest attempt by crooks to steal your money.

State Patrol tweeted Friday that scammers were trying to take advantage of public generosity towards law enforcement.

If you get a call from this number -- or from any other number with a person claiming to be with CSP and wanting money on the other end -- hang up and let your local law enforcement know.
