SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The state Attorney General is warning New Mexico residents of a scammer who has been threatening legal action unless they receive payment.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports (https://bit.ly/24YaAGj ) that the New Mexico Attorney General’s Office warned against the scam Friday, telling residents not to give out personal or financial information over the phone.

Officials say the Attorney General’s Office has received nearly 700 reports of such calls since May 2.

Attorney General Hector Balderas said in a statement that government or law enforcement agencies will never call to make threats of enforcement actions or demanding that people appear before a judge or grand jury.
