The Poplar Bluff Police Department is warning residents about a national "scam."

They say the most recent and most calls they have received recently is about someone calling a resident and saying they are a deputy or an officer with the Poplar Bluff Police Department (or other local law enforcement agency) and that the resident did not show up for court. The caller says if the resident doesn't pay money, a warrant will be issued.

The police department said this is a scam.
