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.

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