A phone scam has been targeting people who live in Clark County by pretending to be 9-1-1.
CRESA 9-1-1 said the scam makes it look like 9-1-1 is calling you, then someone says you will be arrested if you don't send money. If you do call back, you will call the real 9-1-1 center.
According to CRESA 9-1-1, a message that is left on your phone will say if you don't call back within 30 minutes, you will be arrested.
CRESA said they would never ask for this type of personal information and would never leave a voicemail telling someone there is a warrant for their arrest.
If you receive one of those calls or voicemails, don't call 9-1-1 back unless there is an actual emergency.
Please contact the Washington State Attorney General's Office to file a complaint at 360-753-6200 or complete the online complaint form.
