Honolulu Police Department Capt. Andrew Lum answers this week’s question.
Who do you report telephone fraud to?
One can report suspected telephone frauds to the HPD by calling 911.
Frauds and scams are constantly evolving.
Never give personal information over the phone or make payments to people you are not familiar with.
Here are some simple things to remember:
- Take common sense precautions when speaking to someone you don’t know on the telephone.
- Catch problems early by reviewing your telephone bill once you get it.
- If you get a call from someone offering you a prize or a deal that sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

It may take drivers a little longer to get around this weekend. On Sunday, there will be lane and road closures for the Honolulu Marathon.
The city has received more reports of stray bullets from the Koko Head Rifle Range. So the city is closing the range while it figures out how to make it safer.
