Warning about new scam in Hopkins Co.

Posted: Updated:
HOPKINS CO., KY (WFIE) -

The Hopkins County Sheriff's Office is warning about a phone scam.

Deputies tell us they've had several reports of people getting threatening phone calls from someone claiming to be law enforcement, or a member of a prosecuting attorney's office.

Authorities say the callers want to know the person's birthday, and when you don't give them the information they threaten to hunt you down.
