The Tuscaloosa Police Department is warning residents of a new phone scam.

The call begins with a request for credit card information to combat supposed fraud, and then the caller goes on to say s/he is calling on behalf of TPD Chief Mitford E. Tubbs, badge number 2729, to request a Best Buy gift card be purchased for officers. The scam is using the cloned numbers of (205) 349-2121 and (205) 248-5311.

TPD urges you to not fall victim to the scam.
