We have had a report that this scam was attempted on a Fairfield Glade resident late last week. The call threatened to have the person arrested unless they paid.

Residents are cautioned to be cautious of phone calls of a similar nature. Officials say that a civil action is different then a criminal action that results in an arrest.
