ILLINOIS STATE POLICE WARN THE PUBLIC OF "SPOOFING" CALL SCAM

Springfield, IL – Illinois State Police (ISP) officials have received multiple calls from the public concerning suspected scam calls.  Various ISP districts throughout the state have received reports from citizens stating they have received calls from individuals with a foreign accent claiming to be members of the Illinois State Police seeking their personal information. It has also been reported the callers claim there is some police matter that needs to be resolved which requires the would-be-victims’ personal information (full name, date of birth, social security number, etc.). Concerned citizens have also reported the telephone number where the call originated, matched the ISP District telephone number.
 
This type of scam is a common technique known as “spoofing.”  Spoofing occurs when a telephone number is manipulated and disguised to look like an alternate telephone number of a person’s choosing. Usually the number is disguised to match the telephone number of a government agency that would typically gather personal information in the performance of their duties. 
 
A few factors to consider:
 
·         Always ask the caller to identify himself/herself by name.
 
·         If an ISP Trooper needs to collect personal information from you, they will usually collect the information during an in-person interview.
 
·         Although there are certainly times when an incident will require a follow up telephone call by an ISP Trooper to gather additional information, e.g. a traffic crash investigation, an ISP Trooper will never ask for your social security number over the phone. The Trooper will also have knowledge of the incident you were involved in and your specific role in that incident.
 
·         Scammers can be very aggressive in their techniques. One of their most common used techniques is to create a sense of urgency and fear in their potential victims in order to gain their personal information. 
 
·         If you receive a call from and ISP Trooper claiming to be calling from an ISP District, request the name of the caller and advise the caller you will call them back. Look up the ISP District phone number they claim to be calling from, then call the number and ask to speak to the Trooper whose name you were given.  If there is not a Trooper by that name, please advise the call taker of the incident that just occurred.  ISP District telephone numbers can be fo

Illinois State Police "Operation Lambert" Results

Springfield– Illinois State Police (ISP) announced the results of the special enforcement memorial operation dedicated to fallen ISP Trooper Christopher Lambert, who was killed in the line of duty on Jan. 12, 2019, when his squad was struck while he was on scene of a three-vehicle traffic crash. The crash occurred in the left lane on I-294 near Willow Road in Northbrook.
ISP Troopers throughout the state aggressively patrolled Illinois roadways for seven days from Jan. 12 – Jan. 18 in honor of their fallen comrade. The initiative was designed to further educate the public of the Move Over (Scott’s) Law and was held in remembrance of him and his legacy of courage and duty.   


During “Operation Lambert,” ISP Troopers issued 281 Move Over (Scott’s) Law citations and wrote 64 warnings. Additionally, they made 77 criminal arrests through 503 Scott’s Law details statewide.
ISP Director Brendan F. Kelly said, “The results of “Operation Lambert” reflect greatly on this department and the men and women who risk their lives every day to keep motorists safe. It shows their dedication to carry out their duties and commitment to honor their fallen brother. These troopers make me proud to be the director of one of the greatest agencies in this country. We will continue to aggressively enforce the law and educate the public in order to make 2020 a better year.” 


In 2019, four ISP Troopers were killed in the line of duty. Three were the direct result of either a violation of the Move Over (Scott’s) Law, driving impaired, or a combination of the two. We continue to honor and remember all of them. 
 
The Move Over (Scott’s) Law requires drivers to change lanes when approaching stationary emergency vehicles, including highway maintenance vehicles displaying flashing lights, and any stationary vehicle with their hazard lights activated. The law also states, if changing lanes would be impossible or unsafe, drivers are required to proceed with due caution, reduce the speed of the vehicle and leave a safe distance until safely passing the stationary vehicle.

A Cissna Park farmer was sentenced to 364 days in prison for violating probation for federal crop insurance fraud.

A Cissna Park farmer was sentenced to 364 days in prison for violating probation for federal crop insurance fraud.

Jeremy Seggebruch was originally sentenced to three years of probation in December 2016. He was accused of making false statements to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Officials say Seggebruch under-reported the number of bushels of corn produced in relation to a federal crop insurance claim.

Officials say under the terms of his probation, Seggebruch was barred from participating in any USDA programs and was ordered to pay $300,759 in restitution to Heartland Crop Insurance.

At a January 9, 2020 hearing Seggebruch admitted to violating his probation in the following ways:

  • participating in the Federal Crop Insurance program through his sister’s company, Sega Ag Production, Inc.
  • receiving monetary benefits fro a USDA program through Sega Ag Production, Inc.
  • obtaining a $64,981 loan to buy a Ford Super Duty F-350 truck without prior approval from the U.S. Probation Office
  • violating a state order of protection against him obtained by his wife
  • failing to notify his probation officer of his Nov. 27, 2019 arrest for violating the order of protection
