MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation wants you to be aware of a new scam.

The agency is alerting Tennesseans of scam calls from someone claiming to be an officer with TBI.

Several reports have been made this week from people who got these calls.

They say the person identifies themselves as a TBI officer following up on a complaint and asking for personal information.

The calls are spoofing TBI’s phone number.

If you receive a call like this, report it right away to 1-800-TBI-FIND.
