SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - The New Mexico State Police says its name is being used in a fraud scheme.
According to the State Police, a person is calling people, saying he's a State Police officer and asking the person called to contact a particular lawyer about a lawsuit.
The caller then demands money and threatens the people being called with arrest if they don't provide credit card information.
The State Police says its officers never ask for money from anyone and can't accept money.
