PRESTONSBURG, KY (WOWK) — The Prestonsburg Police Department in Kentucky is warning residents about a phone scam.

Authorities say someone is “spoofing” the area’s 911 communications number.

Prestonsburg PD says if residents get a call from (606) 886-1010 stating there is a warrant for their arrest, then it is a scam.

Police say citizens should not give these scammers personal information. They say law enforcement will never contact people by phone about a warrant.
