New Haven police issued a warning Friday about a scam involving calls from someone posing as a New Haven police officer.
Someone is calling residents and telling them they have missed a court date or jury duty and that the resident will have to pay a fine, according to police.
Police say they do not call residents if they miss a court date or jury duty and they never call asking for money.
If anyone gets one of the calls, police ask them to do the following:
