Authorities are reporting a new telephone scam making the rounds. In this latest ruse a caller identifies themselves as a member of the United States Marshal’s Service and tells the potential victim that they have a warrant for their arrest. The caller then tells the person they can pay their fine by credit card over the phone. Police say these kind of calls are never legitimate and if you receive one it’s best to hang up and call authorities.
