NEW YORK – New York State Police are once again warning New Yorkers about dangerous phone scams.

The scammers then request money or bank information.

Most of the current calls are out of the Highland, New York area, though everyone should be advised.

The police want to remind everyone that they would never ask for money or personal information over the phone.
