The Belton Police Department is warning area residents of a possible phone scam going on.

Monday the department posted a warning on their Facebook page saying they have received reports of the calls.

In the post, police say a caller notifies the person who answers about an outstanding warrant and tells them they will suffer if they do not call a 607 area code number.

"Phone scams are common practice of criminals," the post said. "If you have been a victim of a phone scam contact the law agency with jurisdiction on your area."
