Officials with the Camden County Sheriff's Office are warning residents about phone scams taking place in the area.

Officials say Sheriff's Office staff have received numerous calls from residents who say they were contacted by individuals claiming to be members of law enforcement.

The scammers then tell the victims that a warrant for their arrest has been issued, and that they must pay a fine using a pre-paid debit card or they will be arrested.

Officials with the Sheriff's Office are encouraging anyone who receives a similar call to contact their local law enforcement agency to verify the information before giving any personal or financial information over the phone.
