The Amarillo Police Department is warning the community about another scam making the rounds.
The department says residents are receiving phone calls from what looks like the Amarillo Municipal Court phone number, 378-3082, and being told that they are the subject of an investigation.
The caller is telling the person that for $3000 they can clear up the invesigation.
Remember, if you receive a phone call like this, asking for money over the phone, you need to hang up immediately!
The Municipal Court will not call and ask for money over the phone.
They do however send out text messages alerting people with warrants, but do not disclose an amount or ask you to pay by text.
If you have fallen victim to a scam, a report can be made on the Police Departments webpage or by phone.
