Updated: Wednesday, March 20 2013, 12:55 PM EDT
CBS6 brings you a brand new Bottom Line alert, from Albany Police about a scam using their name -- targeting people all across the country.
Police spokesperson Steve Smith says the caller claims to be with the Albany Bureau of Investigation, and tells victims, a warrant is out for their arrest.
The caller then says, if the person doesn't pay up to settle the warrant -- then they will be arrested at their place of work.
Smith says the amount of money requested -- is typically anywhere, from $800 to $900.
Police are warning people who receive one of these phone calls -- it is not legitimate -- so do not offer up any money, or personal information.
Instead, make sure you call police.
