MT. PLEASANT, Mich. (WOOD) — Michigan State Police are warning of a phone scam in which the callers pose as drug agents.

The callers say agents with arrest warrants are headed to residents’ houses to arrest them on drug charges, according to the MSP Mt. Pleasant Post. The callers mention fines as high as $100,000.

The callers appear to trying to get residents to give them money, MSP says.

MSP says the phony calls appear to be out of Texas.

If you receive a similar call, you are advised to hang up and not provide any personal information.

MSP said law enforcement will never call and ask for money.
