BINGHAMTON, N.Y. – Pennsylvania State Police have issued a warning to registered sex offenders that they might become victims of a scam.

PA Police say scammers have been calling registered sex offenders claiming to be cops and alleging that the offenders are not in compliance with their registration.

The caller says they have a warrant for the person’s arrest unless they send a cash card or money transfer.

Police say they do not solicit money in exchange for compliance and that such issues are resolved through personal contact with a law enforcement official.
