Chesterfield and Colonial Heights police departments are notifying citizens about a phone scam that is impersonating them.
Police said a scammer is leaving a message saying you’re in trouble and to call them back before they are forced to take legal action.
The scam has been around for years, but unfortunately it still works on some people.
Officials said no law enforcement agency works this way, so if you get a call – consider it a red flag.
Crime Solvers says if you’ve done something illegal, law enforcement will knock on your front door.
