OKLAHOMA COUNTY – Oklahoma County officials are warning residents to be on guard of a new telephone scam.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s office says someone is calling homes in the area pretending to be with a law enforcement agency or justice system.

They tell the person who answers the phone that they have an outstanding warrant out.

The caller then demands cash either through a money wire or with a prepaid credit card.

The Oklahoma County Sheriff’s office is putting out a warning in hopes of preventing anyone from falling victim to the scam.

If you receive one of the calls, police ask for you to report it immediately.
