ILLINOIS — If you get a call from someone who says they are an Illinois state police investigator, hang up. It’s a scam. Police say someone pretending to be an ISP investigator is calling people and telling them their identity has been stolen.

If this happens to you, ask for the person’s name, badge number, and contact information before hanging up. Next, report the call to the police. They also say you should never confirm personal or financial information over the phone with an unknown caller.
