The Murray Police Department wants to alert residents in that area to be aware of another phone scam involving prepaid cards.
Police say recently, Murray residents received phone calls from a company claiming to be the American Cash Company out of Topeka, Kansas and that the victim owes a balance and fees on a loan and is subject to arrest if not paid.
Police say the caller then states the victim must pay the balance by purchasing prepaid cards and mailing them, along with the PIN numbers, to the caller.
Murray residents should be alerted by any collection agency that uses law enforcement threats to attempt to collect on a debt, police say legitimate businesses will never request a bill or debt to be paid by sending prepaid cards through the mail.
Anyone with information about this scam is encouraged to call the Murray Police Department at 270-753-1621
