Paris Police warn of latest phone scam

PARIS, Texas (KXII) -- Police are warning people about the latest phone scam to hit the Paris area.

Police say the caller says you have warrants for your arrest and to wire money to avoid being arrested.

They say the Paris Police Department's phone number even shows up on caller ID.

Police say this is known as spoofing a phone number and they never call people with warrants.

They advise if you get one of these calls to contact the law enforcement agency calling you before sending any money.
