WATERVILLE, Maine (WMTW) - Waterville's deputy police chief says scammers used his phone number to call a local resident.

Deputy Chief William Bonney said a young woman called the number back but became worried when she ended up on the deputy chief's voicemail. Bonney said he did not call her and had no business with her.

Police will always properly identify themselves on the phone and will never ask for money.
