LEXINGTON, Ky. (WYMT) - The University of Kentucky Police Department is warning people about a new scam.
Here is how the scam works. The caller says they are a UKPD officer and then asks for personal and financial information regarding a warrant for your arrest for buying narcotics online. If you do not cooperate they may threaten you with arrest or even deportation.
UKPD wants to stress this is a scam, even if the number looks legitimate.
They also say you should never give out personal information over the phone.
