SPRINGFIELD -- Police are warning the public about scammers posing as officers to get your money. The con artists are calling people to tell them they have won a large sum of money and to send $1,500 for processing.

When the victims become suspicious, the scammers call back posing as police and saying it is legitimate. Springfield Police say they would never tell anyone to send money to claim a prize.
