BROKEN ARROW, Okla. - Broken Arrow police say they are investigating a telephone scam involving their non-emergency number.
They say someone called a citizen and claimed that the victim was the subject of an arrest warrant who needed to turn themselves in.
Police said the scammer told the victim that the warrant originated from a complaint filed by the U.S. Legal Support and provided a callback number, telling the victim to call the number and receive a confirmation number so that they could provide it to someone who called back the next day.
The suspect reportedly said that an officer would arrest the victim if they did not provide a confirmation number.
Broken Arrow police said they will never call citizens by phone to inform them of an arrest warrant. They said that anyone receiving a call like this should know that it is a scam and avoid providing any personal or financial information over the phone.
