The Missoula Police Department has been made aware that unknown persons or entities have been “spoofing” residents in the City of Bozeman with a phone number that returns to the Missoula Police Department. 

The act of disguising your caller ID is referred to as “spoofing” and we have received calls from Bozeman, as well as former residents of Bozeman.

The caller is apparently accusing the recipient of being involved in an investigation, but thus far has not demanded any money.

The Missoula Police Department is not making these calls.

If you receive such a call, ask the caller for identification, the agency they represent and where they are located.

Then hang up and contact the Missoula Police Department, or your local law enforcement.
