FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A sheriff in eastern North Dakota is warning residents of an ongoing phone scam.

KFGO-AM (https://bit.ly/1hMaqy9 ) reports that the Cass County sheriff’s office says a caller is claiming to be with the department’s warrant division.

Chief Deputy Rick Majerus says those receiving the calls are threatened with arrest if they don’t pay an alleged fine.

The station reports the caller uses various ranks and names as part of the scam including Lt. Johnson and Capt. Laney.

Majerus says he is not aware of anyone having lost money to the scheme.
