Scam alert!

Scammers may be using council member phone numbers to solicit funds

Post Date:11/07/2017 3:26 PM

A new phone scam has popped up in Vacaville, and this time it involves the use of a Vacaville City Council member’s phone number.

A caller will identify themselves as Vacaville council member. Those with caller ID will see that the call appears to be coming from the council member’s phone number, and is therefore legitimate. The caller then asks for a donation, requesting credit card info and other sensitive, secure information.

“The thing to remember is a Vacaville city council member would never ask for a credit card number or any other personal information like Social Security numbers, over the phone,” said Vacaville Police Department Captain Ian Schmutzler. “This is clearly a scammer using technology to hijack a caller ID and impersonate the owner of that number.”

Members of the Vacaville City Council are Mayor Len Augustine; Vice Mayor Dilenna Harris; and council members Curtis Hunt, Ron Rowlett and Mitch Mashburn.

If you feel you have been the victim of a phone scam, please contact the Vacaville Police Department at (707) 449-5200. You can also contact the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-FTC-HELP or visit  To register your phone of the National Do Not Call Registry, visit
