WARREN COUNTY, Ky. (WTVQ) – Bowling Green Police say there are two new scams going around town.

In one, officers say a scammer calls from a local business, telling people they left a credit card in the store. Officers say the scammer promises to return the card after the person on the phone verifies the card number.

Officers also say a scammer is impersonating police, saying information was compromised and they need to transfer the person on the phone to Homeland Security. The person they’re transferred to then asks for personal information.

Hang up the phone and never give out personal information over the phone.
