Milton Police have taken to Facebook to warn residents about a phone scam in which the scammer attempts to coerce money from unwitting phone answerers on behalf of her brother who she reported to be in a serious car crash.

“This call is a obvious phone scam,” the post on the Milton Police Department Facebook page says.
