SCAM ALERT: Police Warn of Hostage Phone Scam

Police say it's a scam that's happening to local people in Central PA.
FERGUSON TOWNSHIP, CENTRE COUNTY - Imagine someone calls you to tell you your loved one has been taken hostage.

Police say it's a scam that's happening to local people.

Tuesday, Ferguson Township Police in Centre County are warning you not to fall for it.

Over the past month, at least six people have told police they received a call, the caller telling them a relative was in danger. The caller demands $2,000 and warns the relative will be harmed if they don't get the money.

If this sounds familiar, or you get a call like this, police say to call them.
